We are all Crazy

If this man is right then we are all crazy for owning and loving our 6.0

I stopped by a small diesel shop that I just found in my town today just to get a feel of the place and the guy at the counter was quite the “expert.” I asked them if they did any aftermarket work like head studs and he right away told me that he doesn’t mess with that stuff but he lets two of his guys do work like that on the side at night. He then proceeded to tell me how worthless my motor was and that right way it was the biggest mistake I had ever made in my life. I had just said hi to the man not even 2 minutes ago and not said a single word about my truck and I get this. He tells me that if it was him owning my truck, ( which he states many times that he never would) that right away I need to put in a high pressure oil pump, a brand new set of injectors because as soon as I go one mile over 100k all 8 will instantly blow. I need a new IPR Valve and Sensor, to have my turbo cleaned and if I have any money left I need to get that solution kit. If I do all of these things then I should have a decent motor. This is all within 5 minutes of meeting the guy and not saying one word about my truck or if I had done anything at all to it. He never asked if I had an exhaust or programmer or anything. I am not the and expert on 6.0s but I have been snooping around this site for about 2 years and the only thing that he said that made any since was that getting the solution kit was a good idea. Would anyone like to comment or at least correct me if I am wrong and he is right… But I think I will find a different shop to work on my truck.

Are you a man or are you a lemming? He has a perception that ALL 6.0s are bad. I'm sure you can find another shop IF you need work. Don't go back, or if you want to rub it in go in and brag about how great your truck works.

Are you having any issues now?

BTW post up some pics with the MAX 4 applied please.

ah the 6.0 is a good motor, has a few bad ideas in it but once to fix them ie studs, delete, and so on there good. and the turbo needs to be pushed hard to keep clean. its not like my turbo. lol

but my first experience with a 6.0 was on our ranch and i lifted a head after 4K on the truck pulling......

Sure, the 6.0 has its issues, but this guy could telll that you needed all that work done now without any input from you or even opening the hood of the truck? Wow, a true clairvoyant!
(It is more likely he wants to empty your bank account into his as fast as possible)
I wouldn't let that guy near my lawnmower, much less my truck.
One good thing about this is that you now know how that particular "expert" is without dropping 2 tons of cash into his pocket.
Maybe all the members around your area would like the name of this crook. Congratulations on your find of the #1 place to avoid!

Yea to say the very least i was quite surprised by what he said with out ever asking me any questions or looking at it. I do believe that, that was the first and last time I am going in that shop. I knew he was full of it but I was wondering if he might have been right when he was talking about the HP oil pump.

I wouldn't go back, I've had my 06 for three years and haven't had a problem with it. I have a pretty good relation ship with the local dealer. Last summer they were looking into buying the BG EGR cleaning system and they asked me if they could use my truck as there test vehicle.The cleaning costs $500.00 and they did it to mine for free.

He must be tired of working on 6.0's. Thats ok, there are plenty of shops out there that would be happy to do the work for you. Granted, they are not the easiest engine to work on, but work is work and money is money. The way the economy is right now he's stupid for turning work down. He must be a mopar nut. They are a different breed.

Absolutely NOT! The 05-07 HPOP's have been VERY reliable. The STC fittings not so much, but yours is an 07, so is likely already the newest fitting. That guy is not a good technician and I would high tail it out of there as was said.
