Depending on what model year(later ones tend to have less incidence, but it's still there), it's common on even a stock 6.0 to lift the heads.

head gasket goes, can mess up the heads, and can allow coolant in to the motor and that will screw the whole motor..... white smoke and oil leaks are some things to look for.

if you lift the heads , it will not cause coolant intot the engine and no white smoke on a 6.0 , only thing it will do is puke from the degas bottle (reservoir), if the egr cooler blows is the only time it can get coolant in the cylinder or engine
