A lot of valuable info here...

Go to the 6.0 section for real world information, not useless BS
There are plenty of good 6.0's out there with over 300k miles. Mine has been good to me.

You are correct on the info ! You can't tell what you have unless you tear it down and stud/ block the egr from the start. The one I had was a pos from day one ! Leaked coolant from the over flow on Day 3 and went down hill from there ! Lost count of the number of injectors & hpop & egr valves went into mine. I was spending more to keep mine running than it was worth.

When buying a used 6.0, do lots of research on it's history. It'll help you a ton in the long run...

Yeah agreed ! But a mediocre 6.0 could financially break somebody if they got a bad one. Btw mine was on the second set of heads in 60k miles before I dumped it !

its all about maintenance. also, people need aftermarket gauges. it is a total must. you had to replace fuel injectors because u had low fp. if youd of had a gauge, u wouldnt had that problem. im not sayin your an idiot. i like my 6.0 and its problemless. i just got on here early and found out about the mods that are needed and how importnat OEM filters are and maintenance and how the gold coolant must be maintained
