6.0 PowerStroke Question

I thinking about buying a 04 or 05 6.0 parts engine. The engine threw a rod so the bottom end is shot. But I was Wondering if the top end is the same as my 06'. Like the Turbo, FICM, injectors. heads, ECT. Any help on this would be awsome. Thanks

IF you buy an 04 make sure its a late version 04 with the style of oil rails that lay flat. Might have to look at the HPOP fittings as well, also make sure your ICP sensor is in the correct place as well.

Beginning January 11, 2006, the heads were different than prior production. This dates marks the beginning of the "commonized" heads. FICM, injectors, turbo - these should all interchange. In 2004, the injectors had a DLC (diamond like coating) applied. Ford has stated that they will work in other model years, but do not mix types. They say mixing the types of injectors COULD cause rough operation (different characteristics). Many folks disagree and say mix and match - no issue.

In 2004 there were some piston changes. Due to the design change of the piston, the glow plug was made shorter by 1.2 mm. If the longer glow plugs are installed into an engine with updated pistons, glow plug to piston contact will result, ending in potential catostrophic engine failure.

Not sure when in 2004 this change was made.

The current turbo bracket went into production on January 5, 2005 beginning with engine serial number 6470111 for Indianapolis built engines and engine serial number 0189356 for Huntsville built engines.
NOTE: The current turbo bracket is reverse compatible with 2004.25 and early 2005 MY engines, but the earlier bracket is not compatible with the later model years.

A new and improved Exhaust Pressure (EP) sensor went into production on January 14, 2005.

Also:

The 2004 and earlier IPR valve is not interchangeable with later year models.

I am sure you know that the HPOP design changed in 2005

and

the EGR cooler was lengthened in 2004 (not sure of the date).

For 2004.25 and earlier model years - these had a smaller water pump.

For model; years AFTER 2004.25: The water pump impeller diameter has increased in size to 100 mm from 90 mm. Note: Both water pumps have the same bolt pattern, but a different sealing area. As a result, the smaller water pump has the physical ability to be installed into an updated front cover. If this is done, a coolant leak and over heating of the engine may result.

FICM should work between the different years but you will need to have it programed to your year PCM.

Thanks alot for the info the guy with the engine says its either a late 04 or an early 05 . I just want to make sure because the engine is $500 bucks and thats alot cheaper than new parts. I only got 5K miles left on my warranty.
