I feel you pain, I wish I stuck with a Chevy. I've driven probably over 400,000 miles with different Chevy's and never once had a breakdown except for a flat tire. My sick point ooh powerstroke has been repaired more times than all of my Chevy's put together in 26,000 miles. I heard a crazy rumor that a diesel motor should last up to a whopping 26,001 miles before it needs replaced. If your heads are going to be removed I suggest you ask the dealer to put in ARP head bolts. These bolts are supposed to be super strong and greatly help you to prevent blowing head gaskets again. The bolts are cheap even if you had to pay extra. When, not if you have to do this out of warranty, I was told it's about $4000-$5000. Ouch!!!! And you thought a diesel oil change was expensive.

You should have gotten a 7.3 but then you'd have to worry about the trans going on you. Unless you got a manual trans.

cmon guys he's looking for help, not a pity party for the 6.0's.

This was posted on 10/22. You must have it back from the dealership by now....what happened? get it fixed?

The second poster is right though....if it's not too late get the ARP head 'studs' installed.

Where is the thread about the zoodad mishap?

I just searched through the 6.0 performance threads back to Sept. and didn't see it.

Is this related to the problem you are having now?

That's why I wanted to read it too....

I'm assuming maybe he drilled through something? I don't know, but i'd like to.
