The question is, did Ford get it right in their development? Personally, I would wait a year or two if I was going to buy one. After seeing the 6.0 powerstroke and 4.0 SOHC conversion fiascoes I want to be sure they have the kinks out of the new engine.
I know this is an old reply but when you mention the 4L SOHC fiasco are you refering to the timing chain issues they had?
