Got rid of the 6.0 today.

Well I only had the truck for a few months and really liked it but I do not like working on the 6.0 and i really should have done my research on that motor before buying it. I am a mechanic (not a diesel mechanic) and I have my own shop and after doing the oil and egr cooler and a lot of other stuff I decided to get rid of the truck. I was trying to work a deal at a local Ford dealer for a used 2010 Raptor however it was a little overpriced and we couldn't make a deal so I ended up with a 2010 SHO with 13k miles. This is a great forum and I will definately be back in a month or so with another diesel just not a 6.0.

Not much really after I was done with it. Part of getting rid of it was because I want to find something a little newer and I fealt that after paying 11k for a truck and having to spend 2-3k on top of that to make the truck reliable is ridiculous. I want another Ford diesel just not a 6.0. I know there can be be problems with other motors but the 6.0s seem to be more problematic than other motors.

I don't think another 6.0 would solve that problem, the emissions,coolant and coolers are pretty much problematic on every 6.0. IMO u should've kept it , 6.0's are great when done right and it sounds like yours was.

Man I love those Raptors. But after hearing all the good about the EcoBoost F150s, I'd rock two turbos

I have to agree. Of the newer Ford diesels out there the 6.0 is the easiest to work on and once you have done the things you did a pretty reliable motor. $11k for a 6.0 is pretty cheap. Personally I wouldn't touch a 6.7 due to all the new emissions stuff on it, and you have to remove all the emissions stuff on a 6.4 or it's a headache.

Anyway congrats on the SHO. I'd love to have one for a DD.
