Short Block or Long Block?
This was a 2005 Harley Addition 6.0L that self destructed the #8 cylinder. Truck was running 120 SCT Tune and no pyrometer?
After reviewing all the customers options of installing a short block or used engine, we went with a new long block from the Ford dealer we get all our parts from. Our cost on the long block was decent when taking into consideration the 2 year warranty, new Cylinder Heads, Injectors, HPOP Updates, Seals, Gaskets, Sensors etc... It also eliminated the labour of building a short block or replacing injectors, installing studs, HPOS updates etc... or rolling the dice on a used engine. We installed the ARP studs, dropped the engine in, installed the intake manifold and turbo, buttoned the rest up and fired it right up.
Finding good, low milage 6.0L Powerstoke engines is becoming difficult and putting a used in engine in this low mileage, clean truck seemed like a step backwards.
Hopefully none of you have to face this choice but if you do, weigh your options. If you have any questions or are in similar situation please do not hesitate to contact me, always happy to help out
