Question about my 6.0 in the shop.

Talked to the dealership this morning and they said they ordered a new shortblock this morning. What exactly does that entail? Is it basically a new engine minus the turbo, intake, alternator, a/c compressor, etc. or is it just the block, crank, pistons, etc and no heads? Just wonderin.

shortblock normally means, block crank rods and pistons, no heads

It had a vibration on acceleration, white smoke on startup, loss of power.

Too bad you need it next weekend. You could have had the heads sent off for fire rings..... .

If you need me to, I can come up and pick up the toy hauler!
