some 6.0 vs. 7.3

just a quick question if you left a 6.0 motor stock other than exhaust and intake are these motors reliable and good running.. i know this is the 7.3 section on the forum but everyone in the 6.0 section will say yes they are so that doesnt help

My 05 has 175K on it with only an EGR valve replacement and an alternator, all of which have had an SCT race file, Intake, and Exhaust. There GREAT motors. and can be just as reliable as the 7.3 if treated right.

The 6.0s are reliable and good running. Leave the stock intake on it.
