Any regrets with the 6.7?

Was just wondering if anyone had any regrets of having to much torque or towing power with the 6.7? ?....
All the time. In fact, I installed the Banks Pedal Pillow. It slows the throttle response and never downshifts. Great for cruising the golf course.
 
I actually do the stock tune is pure crap i have never seen a vehicle that is slower when you floor it the engine takes like 10 seconds to respond when you floor it

bought a banks pedal moster didnt fix it

i have been thinking of getting rid of the truck for this reason

You may have a torque converter problem or something going on mine stock responds fast

I think TFL tested a Tremor with a 6.7 to a 6 something second 0-60. Something doesn't compute here.

I drove a few hours in Wisconsin the first weekend I had mine. I never saw mine shift out of 10th unless I was stopping. Pulled all the bluffs awesome at like 1200 rpm and just stayed in 10th. Unloaded because break in.
 
Not a single regret and this is my first diesel. 5K on it in a month and Big Easy very responsive even with the boat on the back.
 
A mile above sea level will probably make most turbos quicker as it can spin faster to compensate while the drag decreases significantly.

definitely. Mine takes off like a shot.

There is a bit of pedal lag and sponginess on the stock setup, but if you floor it it def takes off. On freeway at 60-65 if you mash the pedal you're doing 85 in like 2 seconds.

He either has something wrong or was exaggerating. I'd get it checked out.

sounds about right:

The high-altitude performance of a turbocharged engine is significantly better. Because of the lower air pressure at high altitudes, the power loss of a naturally aspirated engine is considerable. In contrast, the performance of the turbine improves at altitude as a result of the greater pressure difference between the virtually constant pressure upstream of the turbine and the lower ambient pressure at outlet. The lower air density at the compressor inlet is largely equalized. Hence, the engine has barely any power loss

Forced induction minimizes HP loss but I’ve never heard of altitude helping. But the Ranger had forced induction too so at least they were fair.

Did find this tidbit here that should help people who are deciding 7.3 vs 6.7 and tow at elevation.


“As a general rule, a naturally aspirated combustion engine will lose 3% of its power for every 1,000 ft of elevation gain. If you have 100 horsepower at sea level by the time you get to 5,000 feet of elevation your engine is making 85 horsepower.

  • At 10,000 feet of elevation your engine will make 70 horsepower.
  • At 15,000 feet of elevation your engine will make 55 horsepower.
  • At 15,000 feet of elevation your engine will lose 45% of its power due to lower air density.”

 
Apparition, you need to study some aerodynamics. The induction loss is minimal compared to the reduction in drag.
Why do you think home run hitters love to hit in Denver? And aviation speed records are altitudinally annotated.
The SR-71 is a dog below 50,000 feet.

All depends on the power loss
