Blown headgaskets w/6speed

Anybody ever seen a 6.0 with the 6 speed manual blow headgaskets? I got thinking and I haven't seen a headgasket case on here were the truck was a 6 speed. It kinda has me thinking that the 5R110 lets the engine get to crazy in the RPM's and hurts itself. Also to my brother has an early 03 6.0 with the 6 speed and it is always punched with or without a trailer and is been problem free but his truck is stock so maybe thats why it hasn't broke.

They're out there. You just need to look. I see one 6 speed for probably every ten autos.

I don't know about autos letting the revs get crazy, but when I'm running a Looney tune, it's very easy to hit 4500 RPM. One of the reasons is if you romp on it, it dumps so much fuel into the engine it takes an extra second to burn it off, therefore the engine keeps building revs (as in when you push the clutch in).
