Pro's & Con's with 6.0

I have a 99 PSD 7.3 87K on it and was looking at a 04 PSD with a 6.0 with 38K on it. I have heard good and bad about the 6.0. I have heard some people say that that the 6.0 gave lots of problems, and some say they had good luck.

No problems here - just about to 40K on her and chipped since she had 500 miles on her. I've got more crap on mine than most and she's been a dream and runs STRONG.

I like mine. I think as long as you check it out and make sure it hasn't been in the shop too many times (OASIS report) you'll like it.

Problem is, if your going to have a turbo fail or HPOP orings leak, or injectors pukin, it usually happens between 40 and 80k....or so i have been told. I have 60k on mine and got my fingers crossed that my turbo don't blow.
I personally know 2 people with the same truck as mine and both have replaced turbos (at there cost because of programmers). One at 35k and one at 80k miles.

No, you mean it isn't even broke yet, lol jk.

Well you'll love the power and feel of a 6.0 vs a 7.3 but if you have problems with it you'll quickly regret it. Seems like the 03/04 trucks have the most troubles vs 05+
