I would assume that the work being done at a Ford dealership, that would mean they used OEM headgaskets... Hard to assume though since they did not use OEM headbolts, but rather ARP studs. This willbe one of the most important things to find out... OEM or black onyx. If they used black onyx, then plan to do the headgasket job all over again... guaranteed.
Also, I would want to know why the HG's were replaced... Preventative measure... or failure? The HG's fail because of overboost (Too much programmer for the truck) or because the EGR cooler has failed and is introducing water into the cylinders creating extreme pressures on the TTY headbolts. ALl that being said, has the EGR been deleted or an EGR cooler been replaced? Also, has the oil cooler been replaced? Lots of things to think about. I am currently wrking a fuel injector control module (FICM) issue. Its not fun. Do LOTS of research on here and learn the symptoms, and fix them quick.
As previously stated, no 6.0 is truly ever bullet proof.... no diesel is. Also keep something in mind... Big truck=big parts=big money...
