Looking at 06 or 07 any good?

Hi I am looking at an 06 or 07 6.0l. I have heard kind of bad things about the 6.0l like blown head gaskets, and turbo's? I was wondering if anybody was have problems with there trucks or if by 06 they have figured everything out?
Thanks

same old problems, egr, head bolts, there are alot of different threads about it.

every truck is different so its kinda hard to tell if its a good truck or not. a carfax will tell you everything that the dealer fixed so thats a good start

I have an 06 and I love it! 6.0's after about 03 have a much better track record, but if you chip it and beat on it any will fail at some point. I would do an EGR delete cooler and all and if the head gaskets fail step up to the new head studs while they are in there fixin' that.

I've had 2 6.0's and haven't had any problems with either of them. But in all fairness, my first one was stolen before I even had it a year, and my second one (the one I have now) I've only had since last October. If I had it to do over, after everything I've learned here on the org, I'd look for a 7.3 with low miles that has been babied - there are still some out there, and they'll be cheaper too.

+1...I agree completely. The Ford dealership can supply an OASIS report for repair work completed at any Ford dealership.
