New 6.0 Owner

Gentlemen... (and ladies)

I have finally done it. I have crossed the bridge from 7.3L owner - to 6.0L owner. I wanted more power, more speed, more truck... and I have received just that. I cannot believe how much faster this truck is than my 7.3 - there's no way I could've gotten my old truck to get this quick. Overall, I'm very impressed. It's a beautiful truck and I can't wait to continue it's development. Thanks for everyone's advice and encouragement thus far!

Most mods were done by the previous owner. Just drove the truck back from Houston, TX and it rode GREAT!!!!

Yeah, Jon (the previous owner) only listed it on the powerstroke forums. Here, nation, army, and maybe one other one... Oh well, looks like I was the highest bidder!

I'm hoping I can order these parts from you soon Raul, I'm feeling the itch...

I love my 6.0. I was weary of buying one after all the horror stories going around, but boy am I glad I did. Night and day difference.

Haha, yeah... it's definitely not gonna fit in the garage. It's just a wee bit too big.

Yeah, I'm loving the 6.0 too. So far, so good. I'm a little concerned with EOT's being a little high - I want to find a way to lower it. Looks like I'll be reading several past posts until I get a good handle on my new truck!
