Quinn- I vote the STC fitting. I have been there and done that. My truck quit on day out of the blue. The STC fitting blew apart. I paid a mechanic 500 to replace it. I bought the new upgraded parts and all was fine for 1 month. Around the 30 day mark the truck would not start after it had been drive a while. I would have to wait 1 hour or more for the oil to cool and then it would fire up. I went back to the shop and they refused to fix the truck but did return 1/2 the money i paid. I tore into the truck and found the guy did not install the STC fitting correctly. I was able to unscrew it by hand. The o ring had a cut and the oil would not pressure up when hot to fire. I did the repair work myself. A lot of people make this repair out to be hard and costly but i did not find it that bad to do.
Now for a little horror story. I have seen 3 trucks that the STC fitting blew apart and cracked the bedplate. That part is a pain in the a$$ to replace and expensive. Mine also cracked but i fixed it in place.
Buy a 6.0 and you better be able to work on it or have deep pockets to work ALL the bugs out.
