Dawg and John, thanks – good replies. Yeah, I’m pretty leery of being a guinea pig for Ford. It seems like they’re getting the 6.7L oil burner dialed in pretty well now so I’m inclined to go with it. Done a fair bit of reading on powerstroke forums and the last few years have been pretty trouble free except for the stupid regen but that isn’t that big a deal especially if you don’t take short trips. I got my CFO pretty well sold on the longevity and resale value of the diesel so that will likely be my choice.
It’s good to be a n00b - so I can aspire to be just stoopid.
