Just trying to answer your question truthfully but its also just my opinion. Plus you said 6.0L and the last thing you want while in school is headgasket failure, egr problems, oil cooler failure, so you have to think about that too.
I certainly appreciate you being honest lol. I agree that there is nothing worse than getting in your car to go home (for me 200mi) and having something blow up
. I do more driving than your avg college student because work is ~45min away from campus (skiing) and I do that drive upto 4x/week so the truck would hardly collect dust. I am worried about headgaskets going etc, but I do have a lift at my dad's shop and we are both fairly skilled mechanically so I would take care of the EGR before I went back up to school. I am thinking that waiting until summer may be the best route to go. Get the truck in the summer, stack it, tune it, EGR delete and then once I am somewhat confident that the bugs are worked out, take it back to school in the fall.
