Thanks PGreenSVT!

The " things to consider about owning a 6.0" checklist is almost complete. I just switched the coolant to CAT ELC1. Took all day. I flushed 6 times with water, once with restore, again 2x with water, once with CAT ELC1 then a final fill with CAT ELC1. I now have a relatively new oil and EGR cooler(<10000miles), new head gaskets, bolts not studs, ELC, EGR delete is in the mail, Edge Insight CTS is coming 3/7. Truck should be pretty reliable. Thanks for all the knowledge.

You don't know what you have till you check the other sites. Which seem to be far behind on 6.0 knowledge. So a big thanks to the coolant crusaider.
