Either OEM or a set from Clearwater Cylinder Heads (aka Odessa Cylinder Heads).

Wow...152 views and 4 replies. Maybe I need a new forum. You'd think with the issues this 6L has had with heads that we'd see a few more replies.

Anyway...

I decided to go with the best.
UCF Machine Shop - Ford Diesel 32-valve head rebuild story.

From the research I've done...the O-ring set up they have, let alone some other key items makes them fairly unique and a clear step-up. And to think they were cheaper than stock...

Not sure what to say here. Maybe another 10-15 replies all saying to go OEM or Clearwater would have led you to a different choice? Keep us posted on how those heads work out. The more options us 6.0 folks have, the better.
