want a 6.0 but im scared
i went up to the dealer i bought my cummins from. im trading it straight for 1 of 4 superdutys. there are 2 6.0 diesels one ccsb and eclb. and 2 v10s both ccsb. i really want any of them but the 6.0 is the nicest one. he probably wont trade for that particular one but well see. i want a 6.0 diesel over the v10 simply for fuel mileage and when i have to tow my backhoe around. but im scared of the 6.0. one has 115k and one has 197k. the oner with 197k has 8 new injectors. and i would do the EGR delete and the updated oil cooler as well as a coolant flush. im scared to buy it because i keep hearing horror stories, as well as people telling me theyre hit and miss. i want the powerful diesel under the hood, but i need it to start everyday because its my only car. im in high school, so it needs to work every day, get me to and from, and work hard for me after 2oclock to whenever i feel like quitting. and im on a budget so i cant be replacing injectors and turbos. im scared of the headgaskets going without studs, even though ill keep it at stock power. im scared of the VGT vanes seizing up, and im scared of the cold start issue (which im not too sure about anyway) that may arise in -5 degree temps in new england. someone give me some insight on the truck and whether or not i should go 6.0 diesel or 6.8 v10 which i know are extremely reliable.
