7.3L upgrade to 6.0, maybe..?..?
I've come across a 2004 6.0 for a pretty fair price.
I appears to be pretty much bone stock. I'm going back to look at it again after doing some more research on the 6.0 issues.
My questions I'm looking for some input on are these:
What kind of condition can I expect the EGR to be in on a stock engine?
What sort of conditions can I expect the head HG's to be in?
It has 118k on the ticker, and looks to be very very clean and well maintained cosmetically. I'm going to really look closer under the hood today for the usual suspects.
Bottom line, if this hasn't been chipped or tuned, which I'm not finding evidence of so far, should the usual suspects of 6.0 faults be okay, or does that stuff fail regardless?
