can '05 6.0L be made reliable, or swap to Cummins?
Hi guys. I have a 2005 Excursion with the 6.0L Powerstroke. Is it possible to make this engine reliable? It's all stock right now.
I am trying to decide between modding this engine for reliability and more power, or swapping in a Common Rail Cummins. I have an F-350 that's had 3 turbos, several replaced injectors, and just had to get head bolts replaced at the dealership, so I really do not trust the 6.0L in stock form.
Besides head studs, what else should be done to a 6.0L? Also, is it possible to get the dealership to replace the head bolts under warranty, even though the truck isn't showing symptoms yet (only has 18,000 miles)?
