You need to get head studs with a 6.0. They are not junk motors, they just need a little more loving, that is all. And, I don't know what you are used to, but I always thought they drove smooth and plenty of power even in stock forum. Make sure you change the oil, the have the HEUI system, and the injectors don't like dirty oil..

Well, there's your first mistake, the edge. Should have researched a little before adding a programmer.

I'm not sure what sort of answer you expect to get, coming on in your first post and bashing Ford trucks on a forum where most love their Ford trucks. 03 was the first year for the 6.0, and not to mention the truck is now 8 years old. Maintenance history and how it was treated could have ALOT to do with why it has problems. Good luck with your junk truck, but if you want some advice and knowledge on how to fix it and take care of it then search this forum and learn the ins and outs of the 6.0.

A new motor? Holy crap man, have you ever bought a used vehicle before? Did you drive the truck or look it over before you bought it?
