First of all, Welcome to the forum.
The bad reputation of the 6.0L isn't deserved, the engine is a piece of art if you ask me. (at least for me). If you're getting an EGR code probably the EGR valve is stuck closed or stuck open (too much soot will lead to the failure of the valve, is very easy to fix and clean. Keep us informed of the new codes (if any). SOMETIMES if your fuel filters get too dirty or clogged will trow a CEL (believe me, it happened to me once) so is good idea to change those filters too if you haven't done already. What about the engine oil and filter? You changed the oil & filter? The powerstroke require LOT MORE maintenance than a gas engine.
