Here is some basics.
What to look for when buying a used 6.0L

Here is another.
Things to consider about owning a 6.0L

One of the main concerns is the oil cooler. You need to check the ECT/EOT delta after the motor has been fully warmed up, if more than 15* apart the oil cooler is blocked and needs to be replaced asap.

Start reading up, you'll find lots of threads with similar questions, you'll catch on quick.
