Only thing that might make it any more complex is the electronics side to go with the newer interiors and making it work in the older cab, how much a pain it might be to get everything to play nice and work correctly.

Holey Crap! That's a lot of oil, is it smoking ? I guess you can quit changing it now...self maintaining. Nah, you still have to change it, need to keep good filtering but I would switch to conventional oil.

Good thing, - just like the older Ford engines, they can go along way like that as long as you keep oil in it.

Smokes a little puff on start up but that's it. I use motorcraft oil and filters. Brand new Motorcraft pcv too. My coolant is turning brown so I think there might be some oil in it. I really could care less now lol as long as the new motor isn't burning it

Most people I see go with dual 255s, but what do I know lol, Im just going based off what I've seen as others setups. Probably just depends on where you look and who you talk to, probably based off preference.

Sounds like it could just be a head gasket then. Could be leaking oil both into the combustion chamber(s) and into the coolant passages at the head mating surface. Just make sure you're not getting coolant into oil pan and it probably will keep running alright until you've got a new motor ready to slap in.

But maybe you could get away with just a head gasket and it solves both problems. Your truck seems healthy besides the oil being burned/getting into the coolant.

I think I mentioned this before, maybe not. If you have oil in the coolant you would see blobs of it. Kind of like little oil slicks. Brown is just rust working it's way out of the block. Oil in the coolant doesn't mean it's a head gasket, well, it's not a done deal anyway..could be from your cooler. Right, coolant in the oil is different, it'll thicken the oil and seize the engine eventually. Depends on the leak, could stop up the oil pump if you use at the very least a 50/50 mix. So, in reality, you could just be talkin shiii about you engine lol. It helps warrant a new one with a bunch of power.

I've been thinkin shiii about my truck, I want a new one.

The 2 trucks I looke at were both '14's. The Ford was platinum with around 50k with the 6.2. th GM was a Silverado with the 6.2. with 55k. Both about the same price and waiting on the bank. Both were 4wd. I liked the Ford better
