After the repairs ???

My 05 F350 (93,500 miles) just developed a smoking problem yesterday and after reading many of the posts here I assume I've got one or more of the issues discussed that the 6.0 is known for. My question is this, after the repairs of these common issues, ie EGR cooler, turbo, injectors, heads etc etc, does anyone out there have any info/ experience as to the re-occurence of these same issues, dependability of the engine after repairs, etc. I'm hoping that once I've got mine fixed, I may have a better situation on my hands. Any comments would be appreciated. thanks

I've heard of guys going through a couple of EGR coolers before but like I said, I only heard of it. I steered away from the 6.0L just so I didn't have to worry about the repairs.

I think a lot of people see repeat EGR cooler failures because they don't address a clogged oil cooler which leads to EGR cooler failure. Injector life depends mainly on maintenance. These injectors will last as long as you keep clean fuel and oil in the system. With heads you have to make sure to check straightness of head and block to ensure no more gasket failures.
