There were a few other little things but all in all again, I was not impressed. When I test drove it I hammered it and you could hear the turbo kicking in but the acceleration was not there at all or at least, where it should be. I love my new Ford but if its a deisel you are set on I would strongly suggest a GM (Duramax) or a Dodge. Good luck. PM me if you have any questions.
Do you still think the powerstroke has aluminum heads?? cuz thats incorrect...youd be reffering to the duramax. its the diesel with the aluminum heads! And everyonce in a while you'll find a sluggish 6.0, and duramax, and cummins, but the majorty of the 6.0's are a fast fast truck! along with the duramax and some cummins.
