Is there anything good about the 6.0 Powerstroke

Is there anything good about the 6.0 Powerstroke. I just bought a 2005 F-350 Powerstroke and I freaking love it. I had and still have a 98 GMC 6.5. I loved that truck but this new F-350 is the ****. The question I am having though is all the complaining I see here or have heard about the 6.0 Powerstroke. So my question is that. Is there anything good about. I think my truck runs great and the power is AWESOME. I just hope that the saying if it is a 05-07 your all set is true. I also hope the newer Tourque shift five speed lives up to being a much better tranny. Does anyone have a answer for me am I going to happy and all set with my new beast. Thanks Lthrneck

to the ORG.

I think you will be happy with your new truck. I know I love my 6.0 and it has been pretty much trouble free.
