Ford vs. International

Reading through the post it seems like a lot of 6.0's have problems with head gaskets, egr's, hpop's, turbo's, and other stuff. I was wondering if anyone knows how the international version of the 6.0 holds up. They seem like they are the same engines but internationals HP ratings are lower and it seems like since they are in a more heavy dutier truck they get worked a lot more thus more stress would cause more wear and breaking. So pretty much I just want to know how internatonals 6.0's hold up so I can compare it to Fords version.

No reason to believe they wouldn't. AFAIK, they're made in the same plant using the same materials. There are just more in Fords so your hear more.
