questions about 6.0 trucks

What all mods can you do engine wise without lifting the cab? I own a 7.3 now but I am thinking of getting a newer truck.

Pretty much everything. The engine can be studded, pulled and worked on in the truck. It does make it easier to work on with the cab off though. Stock turbo and sticks with tuning you could see 415rwhp-450rwhp. Most seem to be in the 415-425 range with a hot tune only.

This is how I look at it:

$25k for a late model, low mileage 6.0L and $10k to make it bulletproof at 450 to 500 hp

OR

$65k for a 2011?
