Thinking of buying '07 6.0L PS

I'm thinking of buying a 2007 6.0L Power Stroke. I know this engine has major issues at first, did they work the bugs out by 2007, or should I look at the 6.4?

Read through the links in my sig, and decide for yourself if the 6.0L is right for you. Basically, you want to have a monitor in your hand to hook up whenever you start test-driving trucks.

You're going to get a lot of folks argue for each platform. Personnally, I won't deal with the emissions gear on a 6.4L and I don't believe in deletes - I wouldn't trade my 6.0L in for any truck on the road right now.

If you're interested in my specific thoughts on each motor, shoot me a PM.

I was a 6.4 owner and actually traded it in for a 6.0. 10k miles later in the 6.0 and I'm still glad I did.

honestly? geography would dictate my recommendation

I love my 6.4's, but if I lived in certain parts of the country, I would have 6.0's

How mechanically inclined are you? Or if your not mechanically inclined then i hope you make good money to pay a mechanic haha. All diesels break no matter what motor, brand, size, color or shape. Its all about how you keep up on service intervals.
