feels like walking into a biker bar with a christmas sweater on
let me explain
ive always had a cummins with a six speed.
the opportunity came for me to purchase a 04 king ranch 6.0 to buy and sell for a profit. as life goes, it did not go as planned and had to do major work to it, headgaskets, oil cooler rebuild, egr delete..
then the heads turned to be cracked and deemed garbage.. so i had to buy heads and went with liberator performance 0-ring heads.
as well as arp head studs.. long story short.. after the repairs i did, i have come to fall in love with the 6.0 . i was your typical cummins guy, raggin on any ford. honestly, i can say i find myself driving the ford more, as it is so comfortable, smooth, and the motor.. i cant get over how smooth and how fast it is.. especially with the edge juice cts. i have it on my cummins as well and just cant keep up with the 6.0..
from me, your getting an honest review of both sides.. not long ago i never thought id be on this forum.. and while i know it may not go well to many being that i have both trucks, i feel that as a mechanic, i can offer any tips and help that is asked. i would love to post pictures if anyone would like.
i was also thinking of rebuilding the 5r110 for practice, if anyone is intrested in pictures, write ups etc.
