Question 6.0 bulletproofing

i just bought a 2005 6.0 it has 168xxx on the motor. Is there a way to tell if it has the oem upgraded headstuds? also would it be better to buy the kit or buy everything separate?

on the headstuds, if you look under the heads, if you see a crown bolt, its stock head bolds. if you see a nut on a stud, then its studded.



on parts, you will hear various answers, but really you just replace what is needed cause the repair parts add up. if you are doing a hg job then yeah replace the oil cooler and egr if you want one for emissions. better off just deleting the egr. if the truck runs fine, i would just leave it till it is showing signs early on that it will need to be repaired. i would for now get a scan gauge like a edge cs or cts to watch the two most important engine temp readings. engine oil temp and engine coolant temp. must be within 15* of each other. if its more than your oil cooler is plugged up or is almost plugged up. the other reading to watch is your ficm. needs to be within 47.5-48v.

if you want a oil cooler that wont clog up, there is a air to oil cooler available and one of the sponsors of the org has one. bulletproof diesel. but the price tag is 2k.
