Default Go West, Young Man- Connor M's 6.4

Figured I'd make a spot to peddle my sob story, tell a few jokes, ask a few questions, post my rants, and maybe even inspire another young man to make the same dumb mistakes I did.

I'm from the great state of Taxachusetts with our rust, camera inspections, tight modification laws, and general tomfoolery.

I was looking for a new truck. My 303k mile 2005 Yukon Denali from high school was tired, sad, kinda ugly, and I found out the hard way that the trans was on the way out. I looked for a while for a higher trim 6.4 and fell in love with a ******d 2008 job 3 HD in OKC. Had a few issues- The tail pipe was hanging oddly low, two small tears inside, but it seemed "OK" (pun intended) and the Ford dealership assured me it was in perfect shape and would make it back to MA. So I hopped on a jet and went to get my new perfect truck.

And it had a few small dents but nothing major. The EBP sensor was broken, and we rolled the end over to get some boost back and quiet the whistle. Then in Arkansas at 9pm I found the truck covered in oil when I stopped for fuel and I was down a couple quarts.
A dealer in Arkansas told me it was mostly from the front main and a little from a few other spots, but it was fine, I could just keep it topped off and I’d be fine. So I bought a case of oil and headed off. Then in Tennessee, we got a rocker tapping and limp mode with no codes and shortly thereafter a turbo decided that it wanted a two-piece shaft.
So I left it in a parking lot, got a ride to Knoxville (huge thank you to Jerry Duncan Ford in Harriman) and drove back to get my paperweight.



Took the cab off to replace the turbo and rocker and when I pulled the rocker I noticed pieces of the head gasket missing. I don’t know a lot but figured that wasn’t a good sign and since I was here I’d stud it. So I pulled the heads and shipped them off to get rebuilt by Dennis and the guys at All Cape Machine. Real great shop, and they did a great job on my heads. Had quite a few seats cracked and a lot of shot guides and a few valves.



As I was tearing it down I noticed it’s evident that someone’s been in here before despite a fairly thorough and squeaky clean car fax. Lots of silicone on pumps body mount nuts broken free, etc.


Once I finally got it going I put some switchbacks and LED heads in. I have resistors, reverse lights, and led fogs on the way from VLEDS.



I was showing a belt on the discoverer AT3’s that came on the truck so I used the tire machine at work to put some 35x12.50r20 Cooper STT pros on the truck with equal bags for balancing. Working pretty well so far.




I also fixed the tip a bit and pulled the stripe but it need some serious paint love and some more struggling to perfect the tail pipe, but I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with the exhaust so I’m not struggling with it too much. Added new locking lugs since I was missing one (you can see it in the first tire pic) and they don't fit through the center caps, so I have to figure out what I'm going to do with that.

That’s where the truck sits now, I’ve put ~4k on it and I have some LE oil waiting to go in at 5k (with one of those awesome pails, thanks Jim), roughly 169,000 on the truck. I bought it at 163 and rebuild it at 164.

I’m pretty proud of how far I came. I didn’t have a lot of experience going into this but through a lot of reading and youtube I successfully stripped the engine down to the block face and put it back together and it ran on the first try. (I did mess up the front seal install and had to redo it).

Although I’m proud of my work, I’m now looking to squeeze a little more out of it, and polish out some issues. I need to sort out some tuning, it was “full diet” from the PO but I’m getting a P041D code.
I think I’m just going to get a license for a dashdaq I picked up and see If that fixes it.

A TMPS sensor of course went out 100 miles after I just had the tires off.

Other engine plans are a no limit intake and making my own CCV mod. I kind of want to do a venturi too, just for the cleanliness. IDK what I'm going to do for exhaust right now, maybe just straighten it out and add a tip. I have a new 5" mbrp from somewhere kicking around in my shop.

Thanks for reading, hopefully more to come soon.

Connor

dont hack up your factory wiring with resistors. Nevermind the amount of heat they produce and melt anything nearby. Just turn rapid flash off with FORScan.

Congratulations on the ride, not so much on the problems. Hopefully you got into it right because these 6.4s are pricey to work on. They are beasts when running right!

I thought I read in 6.4s you can only use forscan to turn off hyperflash for the back.

Ordered some very bright 3156 reverse lights from VLEDS for black friday because thatís what the bulb finder told me to use.

Unfortunately the truck very obviously has something much smaller. Everything I find online says 3156 except for one thread here. Whatís the deal with that?

No, I pulled them when I had the heads off and they appeared to be fine. No signs of uneven wear or anything, they spun freely.

Very interesting. Apparently I got shafted with the little leds.

May I ask... why? They seem fine and Iím not having any valvetrain issues, my rocker issue was with the plastic clips breaking and the arms falling apart.

Theyíre the same lifters as a 7.3 and 6.0 and those donít have major valve issues afaik. I also havenít heard of valves being major fail points in well maintained engines.

Not trying to argue, just curious

same as a 6.0, yes. Which also are plagued with lifter issues when the miles get up there. It is accentuated on six fours due to the fuel dilution mainly. If you had the engine apart, the 300+- dollars to put new lifters in is peanuts that may save you a rebuild down the road. Nothing like having a perfectly running engine wipe out a cam and send metal thru the whole thing.

I should have done them when I had it apart, thatís for sure. Just chalk it up to inexperience and save that in my mind for if I ever do it again.

When I did the head gaskets on mine, everything else was running perfectly. I went ahead and put new heads, injectors, HPFP, lifters, rockers and several other things. There ended up being a change in the rockers that only a few people were aware of. Caused me a fair amount of grief until we sorted it out and swapped out push rods as well. Who would have thought changing the rockers required changing the push rods as well? Anyway, all was running perfect until a piston cracked 10k miles later. You just never know what will fail next, so it's a good practice to just freshen all components up that you can while you are there. Hopefully you never know if it saves you, but you will sure know otherwise.

The plastic Rocker clips are for assembly and do nothing after that

Think Iím going to need one of these.
Was rushing to swap and oil pressure switch and felt my ratchet go right through the threads like butter.

I also might try helicoils instead, figured Iíd bounce the idea off a few heads before I spend $50 plus shipping on a little metal adapter.

First of all. F you biznatch.

Second of all. I'm just posting here because I haven't derailed your build thread on this website yet.

Third of all. How did you do your switchbacks.

Fourth of all. Nice truck bro

Hahahaha itís good, build threads are meant to be derailed.

I got putco led switchbacks for the truck. I used VLEDs resistors with the tap harness, and stuck them to the housing along with the led ballast harness.

The fast click was driving me nuts but you wouldnít have to use them if you didnít want to.

I need to get forescan going to tune out the rear light flash, I put led tail bulbs in and the truck fast flashes again.

Hmmm. I'm still flip flopping on the switchbacks. Since I like the look now. Do want led tail bulbs though.

Have you figured out tuning yet? I need a new platform since my h&s took a dump a few years ago and I've been running around on a tow tune ever since.

Seems like h&s is the way to go right now, gonna look into getting one.

I think EZlynk is coming out with a new vehicle to tune soon since they changed the section of their website with the vehicles people want supported to ďupdating soonĒ but thatís not a whole lot to go off of. Theyíve been saying for a while that ecm flash is coming soon for the 6.4, but I can dream right?

I donít think anywhere does ďin personĒ tunes with a laptop like people did with hp tuners or efi live. Not for 6.4ís at least

Got an ezlynk and tuning from ppei last night, but itís still not running perfect. Better but not perfect.
I think i need to replace the ebp sensor. Iím throwing p2563, p2263, p0472, and p1000 but iirc that last one just means i recently reset the cel.

I ******d the crossover pipe and put the ebp sensor tube into the block off plate, and I think it finally came around to bite me in the ass. The sensor is Pointing up but itís still below where i tapped the plate. Iíll have to rethink the way i have it rigged up, but i donít want to drill and tap the up pipe. Might make a new tube that is higher up and fasten it to something so (hopefully) soot and water and whatever else doesnít collect on the sensor. Down the road if the cab ever comes off again Iím putting in aftermarket up pipes with a bung welded into them (and no y pipe).

I think thatís just brake tubing so I could conceivably make one this weekend, Iím sure theres some in the shop.

No codes today, no cel, truckís running good. Quick spooling on the highway, fairly clean, and it feels like it just wants to run. Before it was a chore to stay at 76-80, now it runs easily there. And I know itís a lie-o-meter but the dash is telling me iím getting 19 and change mpg vs 14.X before on the gearbox z (as best as I can tell it was that) tunes.

Got my ez lynk and a bluetooth adapter secured under the dash last night, and an SPE switch bracket. Just waiting on a switch to arrive from PPEI so I can run sotf. Then to line up against my buddyís LBZ, he thinks Iím still running the stock tunes



The bracketís pretty cool, it has a slot for the cable to pass through, a spot for the usb cable for the ez lynk (not sure what thatís for but whatever) and a spot for the switch, it bolts with the obd2 port bolts. Itís a beefy SOB, I like it. I didnít want to drill holes in that pretty Harley interior.

Iím leery to run the 300 hp tune, iím at the 175 and liking it. After all some 20 year old hopped up on caffeine and juul pods built this thing in his garage on a budget.

The cab really needs to come off again and it should get cams, new lifters, and all new rockers and bridges. Then Iíd feel good turning it up high.

Iím looking at another dead 6.4, friend of a friend has an extended cab 450. All i know is that itís sitting with the headlights out and it might be for sale, fingers crossed itís got a blown turbo and head gaskets or something else not catastrophic. Pretty sure it has fairly low miles.

When I was looking, the options for 6.4 ez lynk tunes were gdp, ppei, and some random no name places.
May have changed but that was a month ago or so. I donít believe tyrant, gear head, or tsd were doing 6.4ís on ez lynk.

Tapatalk wonít let me upload a video but the sotf switch isnít working right. Neither is the other switch I bought. I tried a few different ways of wiring them up. I really canít figure out why itís not working, as of this AM their advice was double check the install. I did a bunch of different times and tried another switch. I sent them some more info and a video in hopes that they can help.

Default Go West, Young Man- Connor M's 6.4

Most of you know I punched a hole in the block a couple weeks ago, and I think I finally pegged down what Iím going to do, next weekend there will be engine progress.

That being said I got a smoking deal on a brand new 4Ē stainless jamo exhaust. DP back, no muffler. The tip had never even been out of the box. I love fb marketplace.




I bought a ccv mod from here (@strokersace thanks for the quick shipping man!) , and that will go on the new engine too. Iím gonna try and find some up pipes and a downpipe too since Iím going to be cab off again. I think Iíve seen some fb marketplace deals in the area.

PPEI but you can't get tunes from them anymore. I'm not even sure they're offering support for their old emissions off tunes. Great timing on my part.

I love the ez lynk though. If you're looking for tuning for a 6.4 go with someone who offers ez lynk tunes.
