I'm betting diesel jay will have some specs on it very soon.

Too much junk/toys to mention, ever changing due to too getting bored too quickly. I need a 10 step program!
Want to call? I'm in the book. Want to argue....First explain the square root of negative one....lol

Re: 6.4 Forum now running with some nice info.

And CGI as blockmaterial is out of question?

"Fundamentally incorrect. I have no preference for or against the technology. It's just that Nav has no interest in it for the US market, despite inferences from other sources that it could find applications.

Anyway, GM is now revealing the HighTech of their new V8 diesel.

"Technical highlights of the engine include aluminum cylinder heads with integrated manifolding, compacted graphite iron (CGI) block for a strong engine base and fracture-split main bearing caps and connecting rods for a precise fit. A high-pressure, common-rail fuel system is used, which has the ability to inject fuel five times per combustion event to control noise and emissions."

Re: 6.4 Forum now running with some nice info.

Look Ford has officially announced the engine. It is time to open a forum. Folks want to talk about it. It is off topic here, but I appreciate the site allowing us to continue the thread. I think Jason should flip the switch, since there is a lot of excitement and trepidation building and folks want to talk about it. As the internets premier Ford Diesel site, it is time.

Re: 6.4 Forum now running with some nice info.

Greetings,

Someone owns and runs this site and makes the calls.
But it behooves me why, when Customers are requesting something over and over and over, that the owner would not provide what the customer wants.

I can see posatives and negatives for why not to have a 6.4 and why to have a 6.4 forum. But you would think that 'the customers' would have a significant impact on what a site offers...

On the 6.4 itself.
(Knowing that 10% is nothing) If it is supposed to get 'say' 10% better MPG, and the 6.0 was supposed to get 10% better MPG, and the 7.3 was supposed to get 10% better MPG, just what MPG were the first ones getting, 5 mpg???

Pease and Blessings

Charity, Faith, Hope, and Love!

Re: 6.4 Forum now running with some nice info.

I hope that all of you se the difference going from 7,3 litre to 6 liter and getting 10% improvement in mpg by reducing the engine size 17 %

and then making it again by reducing fuel consumption another 10 % but this time the engine is 6,6 % BIGGER

Re: 6.4 Forum now running with some nice info.

In fact the 7.3 get better MPG than the 6.0. No doubt about that. Maybe a bigger engine gets better MPG? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img] For me not logical but this is Ford. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]

Greetings,

You would have to elaborate more. Seriously, I am not sure I even comprehend what your getting at... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I am not that knowledgable regarding engines, displacement, increase or decrease in HP/TQ and loss or gain in MPG. The best I do is understand that better injectors mean more controlled fuel deliv. in smaller dropletts with more frequent...um, what is the word...instances/episodes. I cant remember the word they use for the each time fuel is delivered and exploded. Doh!

Peace and Blessings

The real issue is actually MPGPP (Miles Per Gallon Per Pound). Here, we are all driving the most efficient four wheeled vehicles on earth. Calculate the MPGPP of the Prius? All factors considered, the 7.3 is far more economical and reliable and the 6.0 is a bit more powerful but prone to failure because of Ford "improvements." [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Ford needs to continue with their 1950's technology iron with the strapped on alloy NASA (PSD TD) parts in order to stay in business. The 6.0 strayed from this working model. Too bad. Unless the 6.4 is a hit and offered in the Expedition, my next purchase will be a GMC Diesel HD Suburban. Aside from that, I sure dolove my hopped up 7.3 and plan to keep it in my fleet until it goes. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

P.S. Wait until the near zero sulpher diesel comes out. It will cost 20% more than gas and will be required in any >12K lb GRVW diesel vehicle. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vulnerable.gif[/img] (hint --Build your biodiesel still now) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smokin.gif[/img]
