Need advice- 6.0 or no 6.0?
Hey all I've been killing myself lately tryin to decide if I want to take the plunge again. I had an 08 6.4 and I loved the truck but kept having problems- so much so that I traded for a gas z71 to try and save money... The problem now is I have the diesel bug and it's not going away... I can't afford a 6.7 and don't want another 6.4. I have found a 6.0 that has all I want in it but I can't convince myself I won't have to put major bucks into it to keep it going... It's an 06(one of the better years?) and has 102k on it.
So first off- what can I realistically expect to have to do to it to keep it from imploding (I have researched and found all the posts about bullet-proofing but don't know if any bugs were fixed by the 06 models)
Second- would this be the best compromise between the 7.3s durability and the 6.4 power?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
