Differences in 6.0's??

My 6.0 took a sh!t on me and I'm about to buy a used motor after checking out my options for a while. I was wanting to know if there is any differences in the years of the 6.0 PSD? My truck is an 06 and the motor I'm probably going to put in it is from an 03 or maybe an 05. I'm really hoping for just a simple motor drop in and hook everything back up and start rolling along. I'm not a master diesel tech but I have some experience dropping in motors (Mainly 5.0 mustangs )

flywheels are different on f250/f350 and the f450/550. F250/F350's use a dual mass flywheel and the F450/F550 is solid.

Exactly what happened to your 2006 6.0? Plugged oil cooler, EGR/head gasket failure? Did you have tunes? How did it blow? How many miles on it?

The f550 and above will work as a long block. I don't think they will work as a complete motor. I would look at a 06+ motor. It has a lot of updates in the hp oil, heads etc.

#1) What happened to your 2006 motor? I haven't heard many problems with it.

#2) If my motor clunked out on me, there is no way I would put another 6.0L in it. You would be crazy to do that. Put a 5.9L cummins in it. A cummins swap will cost you more than putting a new 6.0L in, but it is well worth it.
