New 6.0 Powerstroke Heads and New 6.4 Powerstroke Heads
They’re not what they are cracked up to be (yes pun intended)
Over the last 4 years, almost every Ford Powerstroke 6.0 and 6.4 (100’s) has been cracked. The lowest mileage ever, was only 37,000 miles on a 2006 F250 who told us he is the original owner. The highest on the other hand was 455,000 on an F-450.
We have inspected, cut them into pieces and analyzed where the cracks originate, why they originate and a correction so it doesn’t happen again. We don’t only do this because we are curious, but because we are cylinder head repair experts, and the more we know, the better we can serve you, the client.
This year alone we have repaired over 400 cylinder heads and are proud to say we have not gotten a single complaint or had anyone need to use their included warranty. We have not gotten the first call back for anything.
In Fact, since we started in August of 2011, we have had two warranty claims, and have used both of those cases to improve our process, to ensure they never happen again, as you can read on our blog article “New Ford cylinder heads are flawed copies of Ford’s original design.”
New Cylinder Head Aren’t Holding Up
In this same time period we have had to repair countless Ford Diesel Cylinder Heads that were purchased as aftermarket brand new cylinder heads. Southeast Cylinder Head has noticed that the majority of these are from new cylinder heads that primarily come from China, India, Argentina, Australia, and Mexico that are offering inexpensive heads with cheap quality, as you can see on our article “Ford 6.0-6.4 New Heads Wall of Shame.”
Cylinder Head Warranty – Why Only 1 Year?
If all you want is the cheapest way out to get the truck running, buy new heads. If you want longevity, I believe we have a better product. No one will convince me that valves that we can buy for less than $2.50 will produce a long term solution. As of this writing, I cannot find anyone who is offering a longer warranty on new Ford 6.0 and 6.4 diesel cylinder heads than 1 year, simply because we know they won’t last much longer than a year. Southeast Cylinder Head, on the other hand offer a lifetime warranty, and stand behind our product, because we after over 40 years of experience, we know what needs to get done, and we do it right.
Don’t waste your time with the flawed new heads, unless you want to replace them again in a couple years.
