BULLETPROOF 6.0L

I once had a 2006 6.0, then was stolen from me . I was running Cale's, Eric's and Tony's tunes. This was back in 2008-2009, dont know if these guys are still on here (Im sure they are) I now own a 6.7 and LOVE IT.

BUT.... I am bored and want to build me a single cab with "more" performance. Found a 2005 6.0L with 105k miles for 6k.


Before I "tune" it, I want to "bulletproof" it. Just looking for some advice as to what EXACTLY I need to push this motor hard and not have problems.


THANKS GUYS! and Gals!

IMO, considering that you bought this truck as a toy, I'd recommend starting with a brand new long block that has OEM HGs and some sort of stud (preferably either ARPs or Xtreme Studs) and not factory head bolts. This along with a built transmission, EGR delete, and custom tunes will give you a VERY solid foundation from which to build power from (of course after you've broken in the new long block properly).

What is your price range to have work done on it? Head studs is a must. How far do you wanna take the build do you have a hp number in mind or just a really fun grocery getter

I have priced a "bulletproof kit" for around $1400 and $1500 for installations including fluids. so im around 3k already. Think im going to head that direction, then ill spend a grand or 2 more on paint and wheels.

I dont want a complete race truck, just a sweet grocery getta!

Be careful with some of those "bullet proof" kits.


Some of them use sub par parts like black onyx gaskets, dorman oil coolers, euraisa studs, etc... make sure that you get the good stuff and not the cheap knock off parts that are known to have problems.

If that's the case I would heads done right buy your parts separately not in a kit so you know you are getting good parts not cheap craps that will fail. While you have it apart I would upgrade injectors to 175 or 155. Then talk to Charlie or nate about some turbo options and throw one of there ported intakes in. After that I would be surprised if you said you wanted much more in a regular cab truck . Also don't forget a monitor to keep a eye on everything

That sounds more ideal, buying parts individually. Just wish i knew brands that are working and brands that go to craps!

You can't go wrong with ARP fasteners. OEM head gaskets, OEM oil cooler and gaskets. I would go with a River City Diesel EGR delete or a deleted "Race" manifold from WPE. I would also add a dieselsite or sinister coolant filter. That would be my start on it.

Here is a good thread with lots of part numbers.
