2005 6.0 powerstroke cutting out whilst driving

We have 2005 6.0 F250 that will cut out completely and die on the road.
Leave it a couple of hours and it will restart and run fine.
No engine miss and will run for a couple of weeks strong until it does the same thing and stops.
I have only run the 7.3 up until now and know the usual proceedures to sort out this engine but not 6.0
I was going to change out the cam sensor but if any of you guys have any advise as far as experiencing the same problem please could you post back to me asap.
My father in law took his vehicle to Ford and they say HPOP - no way - the HPOP is mechanical and this engine runs real strong and no loss of power when it is running, this is not fuel pressure problem.
Does the 6.0 have a shorting problem on the valve cover harness the same as 7.3
I just answered that myself though as last time this happened to me the short disappeared only when I replaced the harness.
What are the sensor culprits on this engine. FICM ? Its in a bad place
I know you guys give pretty good feedback so I will wait for your reply
Thanks in advance

Your best place to start is go through the 6.0L no-start list of parameters to monitor, and see what's out of range. To do this will require use of a scan tool that can monitor live data. Have you at least had it checked for codes? If so, what were the codes retrieved? I'm sorry but I would like to know how it was concluded that the HPOP is faulty before I pull the trigger on a $1000 part. An STC fitting yes, because they are a very common failure on 2005 and up trucks. More information is needed.

....who works at a dealership that now employs SOME half decent looking female employees since they overhauled most of the administrative staff

....but STILL loves hot women with big boobies

....and STILL hates working on E-Series with 6.0L

thanks for getting back to me.
I am going to have a root around just to make sure that there is nothing obvious.
You are right about getting the codes.
