    We'll have to see how this all plays out.My 5.4 Ran like no other with no problems 170,000 miles when I sold it and it still had the original starter and alternator,all I did was oil changes and spark plugs at 80,000.I just hope my 08 V10 runs as long.I'll wait a couple years to let them work out all the bugs first before I jump into a new Truck.

    ??? Why is the HP and torque less on the 450 and up?

    6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 turbodiesel is rated at 390 hp (at 2,800 rpm) and an earth-shaking 735 pounds-feet (at 1,600 rpm) in the F-250, F-350 and F-450 pickups. The F-450 and up chassis cabs are rated at 300 hp and 660 pounds-feet.

    It how the engine is tested.


    The Environmental Protection Agency requires different emissions testing procedures depending on the gross vehicle weight rating, which leads to different power ratings. So-called "heavy-duty light trucks" below 14,000 pounds GVWR are tested using a chassis dynamometer; medium-duty vehicles whose GVWR is 14,000 pounds or greater are tested using an engine dyno.
