Anyone here taken delivery of an HO 6.7 yet? Im on my second "normal" 6.7 (17 and 21), and I'm curious....
sounds a lot like tune that bitch and you'll have an HO 6.7

would be curious to know what, if any, physical differences there are

Is it possible to make this much diesel power and still achieve emissions standards...?
Or will we see another "cheat" story in a few years and a huge settlement like Cummins?

I'm not sure how well I can trust Edmonds, but it listed a 2023 F250 shortbed at 7331lbs for a curb weight. That was the Platinum as they didn't have the 6.7L option for the Lariat. My 2015 rolled over the scales at around 8700lbs with three people and about a half tank of fuel. I'd imagine the rest of the line is probably similar in weight to other years.

What’s the update on the HO version? I need the details as soon as humanly possible before I get overwhelmed with anxiety
Starting off in 2nd gear, managed 0-60 in 5.5 (and that was a Tremor Lariat, with 35's). 1/4 mile is weak as Ford limits top speed to 94/96 ish I think.


My towing weights. (Includes close to 7-800ish in bed, for tools/spare offroad rig parts, that I load in with my bobcat on a pallet)

Trailer is not a ton of weight, but with a 7 foot tall FSB (on a "taller" deck over) with 43" tires, and a full EXO, it's like pulling a parachute.

I tow about 70-73. About the same as my 05 Dodge (Cummins), that had a programmer and dual stage Meth kit. I'd guess that was 375/800 Gross HP/torque.

This thing feels like triple the power. You can be in slow lane, come up to a slow moving dump truck lets say, and bang into the fast lane (which is 80-85 on most jersey highways), about the same as you would with a mild performance sedan.
I haven't actually floored it yet, not even up the 17%, 1/4 mile grade in the Pa's Mnts., right near AOAA offroad park entrance.

I admit I have never towed with 6.7 SO, so this might not be that big a deal compared to that. But on the F250, the HO gets you the 11,400 GVW package, which is almost a grand if spec'd by itself. So if you want that package anyway, it makes HO only $1500ish more than SO. It also gives you identical build as a base F350, but saves you a grand over exact same truck. I used that grand for a rear locker, rear defrost, optional front wheelwells.

The big thing I effed up on was not getting power fold/telescope mirrors (my Dodge had std towing mirrors, so I never really realized how big the mirrors are on these newer truck) . Only a $280 option by itself. Will cost me a grand probably to upgrade to that, eventually.

Hell, my 2001 F-250 SuperDuty with a V-10 crossed the scales at 7,800 lbs empty, as in just a topper, 1/2 tank of gas and me in it. Hard to believe the newer ones weigh less.

Tow words... Aluminum body


My 2017 ccsb weighed 7400lbs with the diesel.

My 08 was 650lbs heavier.
