2006 6.0, do they have problems?

I've read some horror stories about the 2003 6.0 and the 04's. Are their any issues with the 06 or 07s?

Proverbs 21:9 It is better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a nagging wife in a lovely home. Now you might not believe in God, Jesus or the Bible, but I'm sure you can appreciate the wisdom of that verse. Amen?

Some times i have 06 350 CC SB i have had one problem i lost the turbo at 9k and i was not a happy camper.200 miles prior to that they cleaned the fins on it and recalibrate it run fine until the engine like came on again.Now i was ready to shove this PSD up FORDS Azz.I drove it right into the dealer shop and told them that they were going to put a new turbo on it right now they were not going to clean it again.Three hours later i had a new turbo on it and it run like a stripped azz ape. I have 16K on it now.

How do I know if I have one of those "bad" turbos? Just wait & see if it dies?

10K no problems here. And that is running it pretty hard with the Edge but I think she likes it.

17000 on mine and the only issue was a leaky rear main seal. Just had mine in for service and everything is "hunky dory" (knock on wood).

Off topic, but it's my post so I guess it's OK?

I see a lot of people on here say "knock on wood". My grand parents used to use it all the time, and then finally I asked and the answer freaked me out.

Looooooooooong time ago, it was beleived that fallen angels (demons) lived in dead trees. Knocking on wood when you heard bad news, was acknowledging the demons existance. Kind of "giving props" to them so they don't harm you. I researched it a little, and it's the answer I got every time.

It's early. I've had a pot of coffee. I felt like typing.

Back on topic:

How long should I wait to install my exhaust & SCT? Iv'e got 1200 miles or so.

Proverbs 21:9 It is better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a nagging wife in a lovely home. Now you might not believe in God, Jesus or the Bible, but I'm sure you can appreciate the wisdom of that verse. Amen?
