6.0 and propane? ematabmm?

emtabmm maybe you can clarify this. I am wanting to propane my new 6.0 when I get it BUT I have heard that the new piston rods are a powdered metal. the old 7.3 rods were forged. Is this true? and if so would it be safe to still inject the 6.0 or am I just looking for trouble?

What reasoning? I will not do it. I am just going to rework the turbo on it. Why though?
thanks bro!

Quickest way to void a perfectly good 100000 mile warranty..... OK mods would include exhaust, filters and some cold air intakes.....Of course if you don't care about the warranty, the engine will hold it....

Which intakes are OK? and as far as exhaust, is catback only "OK" or can you do the DP back without pissing off the claims guys? I am about to order my new CrewCab 250Sd with the 6.0 and I am just trying to get my facts straight.

Thanks

That is my only concern the engine will it be able to hold up or does the new pistons create a cocern?

Emtabmm, Could you elaborate a little on the exhaust question that Eriklind asked above? I would kind of like to know this myself. Thanks!

Just about any exhaust will be ok as long as it is of stock length, diameter can be large, cat back only....

I can just tell you the way most dealers view this subject, if the mod "can" damage related components then it is assumed it did....

Yeah, Thanks for the above info emtabm. Is there a possible problem that a down pipe or turbo back system can cause? Good luck on getting a new truck erilind!
