06 and 07's headgaskets

Are those years known to have as many problems, if any at all, with headgaskets going bad, head bolts stretching?

all 6.0's from 03-07 are susceptible to blowing headgaskets due to the TTY head-bolts stretching.

ok. just wondering. After a nice hammer down and letting off the pedal I'm getting the "tea kettle" whistle. Only when running ID's "street" tune. No puking, but I can see a little bit of white residue around the degas bottle cap.
My oil cooler was changed around 4k miles ago, my EGR supposedly passed a "test" and they (Ford) were unable to duplicate my concern.
I'm thinking about going back to stock for good, but wondering what might be the issue. I've got 5k left on my 100k warranty.

5K untill it's over! I'd have the heads check real good. I had the same sound and it turned out to be the head gasket. A good diesel tech should be able to find the true cause. The cost of my repair bill for head gasket R/R, oil cooler replacement, EGR replacement was $6000, billed to FoMoCo. plus my ARP's, heads sent out to have them checked and intake hot bathed on my dime, just to be sure. Cost to me was about $1000 plus I tipped the diesel tech $200. All in all it cost me $1200 to have the engine running at it's best and a piece of mind knowing that it will not happen again.

If your commin, it's over. If your stroken, it's just started.

bigrob, go 70 mph and get the truck to build boost around 27 or so and go to about 90 let off. keep repeating.

at first my truck was only puking with IDP extreme street, drove 40 miles to the dealership doing that for about 5-10 miles and being hard on it at lights and it had puked a ton on the stock tune

call some dealerships and tell them straight up what your wanting, some are willing to work with you since some dealers service is slow and they need the money
