Default Thinking about getting into a 17-19 6.7... any issues?

I'm coming from the 6.0 world and thinking about buying a 17-19 6.7 soon. Is there any issues with them worth noting? Anything I should be looking for? Any tips etc, I'd appreciate it.

Oh what's with the people freaking out about having clean fuel? Is the oem fuel filters not good or something?

People are ****ting bricks over getting clean fuel due to **** fuel being the most common cause of fuel system failures. You get something full of water, dirt, def, gas, etc it ends up being close to a 10k bill...

But isnt that the point of the OEMs fuel filtration system now? To filter that out? Seems as if most are just running the Dieselsite dual filters, right?

People are running the diesel site pre filter so they can see if there is **** in there. It doesnt matter how good the oem filtration is, it is not going to get 100% of the water out if you get watered down fuel, ot will not pull any gas or def out. It will filter dirt and stuff out however. Even as good as the factory stuff is, 10k is a ****load of money. Plus after the 6.4 debacles, where the pump would **** if you looked at it funny, people are still a bit hesitant.

Bottom line is, if you get fuel from known good sources, and dont do anything stupid when filling up, like grab the wrong nozzle, you will be fine for quite a while.

Might considering waiting for the 2020. They get some goodies. They also get a different injection system. It will be a roll of the dice on the new 10 speed though. Probabaly going to be the Denso stuff like the Duramax went with.

You’ll get one every now and then that likes to let water into the cab through the cab lights, and the moon roof drains, or the door seals.....

sweet... Looks like our Edge isnt the only one that does it. I cant believe they release these vehicles with these issues. Dont they test them in like a rain tunnel or something before releasing the vehicle for production?

You would think wouldn’t you. Currently lemon lawing my 2019 because of issues with leaks that they can’t find.
