O.K. first I must say sorry to okfordteck for calling him a troll...I guess you could be both a tech and troll but that does not seem to be the case.I want to know;
is this just 05?
what are the symptoms too look for?
Do trucks with melted pistons have bad head gaskets too?(might make sense.)
You said perhaps leaky injectors and other say fords cut off is 5%fuel in the oil, perhaps a new cut off is in order?
I am sure others have better quesions but I would like too prevent this if it is in my controll.. the list...

Sorry I called you a troll. It was the 6.4L CAT that did it. It is going to be a Navistar 6.0L bored/stroked out to 6.4L with a 2nd turbo for low end grunt. I did not think a true Ford tech could be so wildly wrong or misinformed so I assumed you were a troll. I believe the CAT will be an option in some of the heavier trucks. I do not know what displacement it is.

Post Toasties? I prefer Kellogg's Raison Bran, unsalted.
