Preventing problems with 6.0
I have been doing heavy research on the 05 and newer 6.0 liters,,I say 05 because I would not even consider a 03-04. From what it sounds like the main problems with these are turbos overheating, head gaskets leaking, and a few other things. I am considering buying an 05 or 06 and almost immediately putting on an ARP head stud kit, head gasket kit, an intercooler, a fluidampr and a set of gauges. I am not looking to have a hot rod, I will be towing a toy hauler and doing everyday driving. After I do these mods, I might put on an intake and exhaust. Am I way off or what?? Would this possibly solve most of the problems with these motors. Could I go older in year if I did these mods, are there any other mods that would make it reliable??? Any input is greatly appreciated. I have no problem going out and buying a Dodge with the cummins and have no problems, but I like the looks of the fords better but am not intersted in a shop queen. thanks in advance.
