TTA89 said:Funny, I always wondered why the Ford and Dodges sound like the rods are about to come out the sides?
Is that Farm Tractor sound an extra option or is that included with the 70 something TSBs and Recalls on that POS Ford?
I know how to fix it. Just floor it! Bad ass rods in that 6.0 compared to GMs stuff huh?Otto J said:"Since the engine debuted three years ago, Ford has issued at least 77 technical service bulletins. That is far above average, even for a new engine. These bulletins tell mechanics how to diagnose and fix various problems.
By comparison, there have been eight service bulletins for GM's Duramax diesel V-8 and none for the diesel engine in the Dodge Ram truck. Both engines debuted at about the same time as the Power Stroke."

Just to back up JD...http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=115662JDSfastGN said:lol they hold up fine, looks can be decieving. Apparently he didn't see the new test in the Deisel mag where the duramax Dually owned the hell out of the Ford and Dodges in every category. I do believe the Ford had some problem as it only put down 440 to the rear torque wise, but the Chevy put over 560 if i remember correctly and the Cummins put 540? with the chevy also having the most HP, and then proving it on the track by outrunning both trucks loaded and unloaded by a wide margin.
I spelled "PECKER" wrong?EightSecV6 said:They all have their good and bad points, it is a matter of preference. I dont think you could go wrong with any. I bought my Ford because that is what I have always bought and have been very satisfied. The Ford will tow FAST and this is what impressed me the most. The rod picture was for a certain individual that responded in this thread and he mispelled my name too :headbang:
