A turbo won't make it more reliable, but more efficient and powerfully yes. As for the Ficm from bpd, it looks nice and will perform just the same as every other upgraded unit as far as I can tell. The new Ficm will make it more reliable if you have a poor Ficm or yours is going out. If your Ficm voltage looks good then I wouldn't bother IMO

the 6.0 is not as bad as people make it sound, with the proper steps their just as good as the 7.3s just faster, with more horsepower, more torque, and just look better, plus alot of the reliability mods are ones that give those. the head studs with ford gaskets make it dang near bulletproof, if you cant get rid of the egr system bulletproof diesel sells upgraded ones with a remote oil cooler. i think theres a thread here asking for high mileage 6.0s, that will ease your mind alot
