Major Problems with the 05 6.0s:
1. EGR Cooler Failure-Deleting the EGR system completely is a recommended step.
2. Injectors- Tend to have problems with sticking and failing, again regular maintenance is the key there.
3. HPOP/LPOP- Key maintenence
4. Head Studs- Can be replaced under warranty, depends on the dealer/customer relationship you have with yours. ARP studs with stock OEM gaskets will be plenty good for Tuner, Turbo, Slight injectors, and nitrous/water meth.
I am a firm believer that once the EGR system is completely taken off of these trucks and the head studs are replaced that they are truely just as reliable as the 7.3. But the key is regular mainentance, oil changed every 3-4 thousand miles and the fuel and tranny filters all need to be changed often as well. These trucks treat you like you treat them. If you run the piss out of them and don't service'em then they will give you all kinds of problems and nickel and dime your butt to the bank. But if you take care of them and don't rag the crap out it you will be fine.
