You lookin' to hear about JUST 04's, or 6.0's in general??????????



I LOVE my 07', BTW - only 35K, but no problems yet, and the mods have only started

SCT w/ custom tunes,

Get the supporting mods first - exhaust and gauges. Don't worry to much with the intake. The stocker flows PLENTY

Start there and then GO CRAZY!!!! Let us know how it goes.

I love my 6.0 As far as mods... you can hit over 400rwhp with a custom tuned SCT. Definitely get a set of gauges...a good exhaust minus the cat will give you an awesome sound and help with the EGT's.
Biggest concern is going to be headgaskets and EGR system...fix both ASAP, headstuds and delete the EGR system then keep a strict maintenance schedule and you should be good. I believe one of the largest factors in poor running 6.0's is lack of maintenance.
For mileage you are looking at about 15 for fatty all the way up to maybe 20 for a lighter 250

the known problems you "could" run into, thats about it. i have done egr delete and studs. there are the only known problems to be worried about. some trucks run great. i have an 03 and i havent had any problems with my truck,

depending on your power levels things become weak, but other then that its a great all around truck with plenty of power from the factory and some options if you want more

good luck!
