Any input is appreciated!

as you can see i am new to the forum but i am very interested in powerstrokes so i have been on here doing research for mods and common problems. I am still in school so i cant really afford a truck payment until i get out but i am in the market for a good obs 7.3l to get me started in powerstrokes. Anyways i was thinkin i could spend a few more $ and get a 6.0 and possibly have a newer, more reliable truck but i have also heard they can have problems so i was hoping somebody or everybody could give me an idea of what i would need to do to keep the 6.0 strong and reliable if i decide to go that route. Thanks for all the help!

a friend of mine is in a diesel program and he seems to think it will only cost around 3k (egr delete head studs and somethin else) to make a 6.0 reliable but from the hearsay im not sure if thats accurate

Unless you want to spend a few grand to make the 6.0 reliable... I would save your money and get the 7.3l. I hd the money and still wouldn't get the 6.0.... too much risk, IMHO.
