bad news for my 6.0!!!

i took the truck in for studs ,delete,and head gaskets about a week ago , and today i got a phone call telling me one of my cylinders was out of round alittle and that i need a new piston on that same cylinder...the mechanic said he could just have the bad cylinder bored out and sleeved and put the stock piston size back in...will this cause any problems on down the road ? is ths a good option? and will it still be safe for a few performance mods and towing ? thanks alot!

Any way you can get the truck and run!!!! Have seen an awful lot of these 6.0L torn down, even with severe head gasket, oil cooler and egr cooler failure and have NEVER seen out of round... Doesnt mean it couldnt happen, but if it was you would have had low compression, misfires maybe even not running. So whats the back story?

well i got the truck about a month ago and pulled my horse trailer a few times and noticed it was puking alittle,other than that it ran great but it had alittle bit of a knock sometimes, but my mechanic said it was an injector so i told him fix that too and when he tore it down he found the cylinder issues

If it is out of round go ahead and sleeve it. It is that or a new block.

Sleeve it. I had a 351 stroker that ate a wing nut. Took out one slug and the cylinder. I did have problems but only after it was raced, sprayed and then sat for 2 years. There is no way in heck you will run your 6.0 as hard a I ran this 408 Windsor!
