any truth to this?

Is it true the 6.0 excursions didnt have problems with head gaskets because it was a cast iron block and not aluminum like the trucks? Someone told my buddy that when he asked if they've had any problems with their 6.0 excursion.

whitout a tuner it is possible, one reason of gasket failure in diesels is, thermal expansion, if the heads are able to expand more quickly then the block, you have excessive wear.

The motor in the excursion is the exact same one that's in ours. Another faux pa.

Exactly. I have yet to see a 6.0 with an aluminum block. And the idea of an aluminum block with iron heads is even funnier.

I'd like to see any diesel aluminum block that could stand the pressures. Not saying one doesn't exist, idk.
