stock or modified?

I didn't really know where to post this but its to do with performance 6.0s so here it goes.

I might be getting a highly modified 6.0 one of 3 i believe type of deal. I plan to swap everything out and put it all on my truck. question is what do you guys think about swapping my set up on the the other truck and selling it as a 550hp truck or return it to stock and sell it as a stock truck?

It will have custom traction bars, fuel system, studs and egr delete, aftermarket air filter, 4x4 lowered. so it will already set up for the power but do you guys think it will sell better or bring more money that way? would you guys rather buy a built truck or stock one?

As you well know, you won't get squat for the aftermarket goodies except to someone who knows what they are worth... Sell it as stock and keep the aftermarket goodies and sell the ones where you have duplicates for a bit more spending cash.

A 6.0 scares people away in stock form and go fast parts on it won't help in the reliability department...

Sell it as stock; swap the aftermarket parts for stock parts plus some cash and you will be MUCH farther ahead.

When I went looking for my truck, I specifically looked for one that hadn't been touched just because as a buyer you have to assume with all the mods it has been beaten on. I would go the stock route but that's just my

good point I did the same thing. Stock it is.

hard part is you cant take the traction bars off because they are weld on. and i dont know about taking the fass off.

I'd put ll the parts on the lowered 4X4, and sell yours. It'd be faster.
