I bought a 2004 6.0 psd last year with 130k on it. After owning it for a month I had 3 injectors fail as well as the oil cooler. I replaced the injectors, cooler, and did a egr delete. Now at 200k it has a blown head gasket and another failed oil cooler and one hell of a cold start issue. I talked it over with the wife and said enough is enough
. I decided to pull the motor and have it completly rebuilt. The goal is reliabliity and a good balance of MPG and HP or just a lot of HP I really havent decied yet.
