    bought a 2014 F350 pick up last year with the 6.7 in it and put a 9 ft boss straight blade on it. maybe its just another shotty ford diesel but the thing always sounds and runs like its laboring, even when not plowing. ive driven 7.3's and 6.0 and they werent even this bad. never mind the fact that the dealer says i should be able to get 10k miles on a tank of def, 900 miles later filling it up.... dealer says its normal to chug def while plowing and idling. i dont know after our last 6.0 its probly going to be the last ford i ever buy. i have three trucks that need replacing this year and thing of going Ram 3500 diesels.

    is anyone else noticing their 6.7 seems to be working very hard with little output?

    All the new diesels suck. I'd go gas. I never hear of anybody complain about their gas trucks.

    my grandfather always told me, diesel last longer, less maintenance, more "heavy duty" so thats always what i thought. he has been buying ford diesel for 61 years for his fleet. how ever i drove a ram 3500 and a 5500 dump last year, and those things sure know how to put the power down. my 05 jeep cheroke gets 13 MPG with a v8 i cant imagine the MPG of a v10 or a 6.4 hemi especially plowing.

    On my 4th 6.7, best motor of all the ford diesels altogether. Lose the dpf and you'll be a happy camper.

    That message no longer appears. More power and longer life since it doesn't have to regenerate.

    And yes better than the 7.3. 7.3 is a dinosaur

    No I feel mine has way more power than my 6.0 powerstoke. It pulls whatever I want and seems to struggle and downshift less than my older 6.0. I have about 12000 miles on the truck and have filled the def twice.

    ditch the DEF and exhaust system replacing it with a straight pipe. then you will have a rocket ship.

    So what do you have to do if you ditch the def to get an inspection sticker?

    On a 13-and up the only way your going to "ditch" anything is to go with "EFI live".
    The days of delete tuners are gone.
    It will be a $1500 investment in a EFI programing and you can kiss the power-train warranty good bye.

    get a gasser,
    I as many on here will tell you they run out of traction long before they run out of power.

    Not true. My 13 and 14 tuned.

    I think EFI live is for GM's, I could be wrong but never heard of that being used on a Ford.

    ok I know almost diddly about the furd.
    but you can no longer get a deletable tuner(by law) unless you buy a used one from a private party..

    the EPA will fine them into bankruptcy, regardless of brand. Just ask H&S....

    no deletable tuners are on the market that will allow a 13and up cummins to be deleted.

    efi live is available for the cummins 6.7, 13 and up.

    I do a lot more city driving than highway. The def usually lasts about 1 gal/1,000 miles running empty on my 11 f350. We will see what happens when I hang a stainless mvp3 on it.

    You can still get them. You just have to know where to look

    Efi is for Chevy. Cummins just got supported recently. No support for ford yet

    you can get a used one from a private party, if a dealer is selling it, thay can be in deep dodo

    "the EPA recently enforced its position against the sales of DPF kits with a recent suit against one aftarmarket programmer manufacturer. Edge Products, out of Ogden, Utah, sold more than 9,000 units from 2009 to 2011. The company now must pay a 500,000 fine and buy back the devices from their customers. The company must also spend more than $150K in implemtation of an emissions mitigation project to offset the particulate matter emissions the EPA claims the sales of these devices caused.

    I can see taking the chance with a cummins buy you have to be crazy to do it with a furd.

    I wouldn't use a tuner as they are mostly crap.
    but EFI is interesting,
    and yes, my DPF was stolen.:)
    so don't take me as a naysayer.
