So I think I have greved enough, and its time to move onto something....well I wont say bigger, because I am not going to lift the next one, but would say better. Starting all over.......Killed Myself
I am glad that I dont need to make a jump right away because my father is loaning me my old 95 OBS for a few months, but I am in the market for a new truck.
My thoughts are, have done an OBS, 00'7.3 now is my time to move to a 6.0.
The next truck is going to be another Vegistroke.
So what I see is yes the 6.0 has some issues, but all since have been adressed, the 6.0 power per dollar is alot cheaper than the 7.3. dont get me wrong i loved my 00 but I am looking down the road here to what I may like more.
An SCT with custom tunes, is going to be as good if not beyond, a 7.3 with stage 2 injectors?
So this is what I would like to know:
Known 6.0 problems that I seen are HEAD STUDS, EGR, TURBO OIL LEAKS.
what others have people seen that I should pay attention to?
Next is trans, is it safe to say that the torqueshift 5spd is more reliable and able to take more power than the 4r100 (not sure if thats right? 7.3 auto...)
What particular years are good/bad for what reasons?
On craigslist and ebay I have seen 03-04s with less than 100k going for 11.5-15 and 05-06 anywhere from 14.5-26K so I am targeting myself in the 04-06 range for what I am looking to spend.
As far as truck changes in 05 they changed the front end style, coil front, and did they also change wheel bolt pattern? I have 16X9 wheels, 8X100 pattern so want to know if I am going to keep them or sell off. I will add stuff in as it goes but whats everyones thoughts?
