How strong are the stock 6.0 internals? (rods, pistons, crank)

I am looking at a truck (04 ccsb) that has a powermax turbo, 200gph airdog pump, 190/80 sticks, arp studs, stock gaskets and all other bulletproofing done.

The owner showed me a dyno sheet and it put down 480rwhp and 880 ftlbs and I was wondering what the limits of the stock internals are?

So at what number should I have to start worrying about beefing up the internals? The truck is a DD never taken to the track and will tow quads often in the summer but its only 4 so its light and it will tow a car about once a year at the most.

There are a few guys on here that daily drive a 600 to 750 hp 6.0 on a stock bottom end. The bottom end on a 6.0 is very stout.

For what it's worth, with your set up, if you were to change to a stage 3 style turbo, you could effectively jump 100 hp. 190s have been proven to dyno 580 hp to 620 on a stage 3

You won't have to worry about them at that HP. I'm sure there are folks here that are running way over 500/600 on stock internals.

Thats good to hear about them holding up,

So my fuel system should be good to go I just need a stage 3 turbo if I want some more hp?

It has bigger fuel lines as well but Im not sure of the size, I am just waiting to finish up the title work then I will post up some pictures.

You are correct on the charger for more power. If you want to shoot me a PM I can get you quoted on a couple variations that would work great for you

Even with just a powermax that thing should break 500 hp

Its 190/80 injectors so I figured it was pretty close to being correct since its not 100 nozzles.

Does it seem low to you guys? I plan to get a FICM tune when I purchase the truck.

And those numbers were live tuning it was just for a dyno day, so who knows how accurate they really are

^^ It all really depends on the trucks condition. If it's not a healthy running 6.0L anything is possible.

Its a healthy 6.0, I looked it over really well.

The only way I could know more is to tear it apart.
