the 6.0 does tend to have a few things go bad over time. FICM, oil cooler, head bolts, EGR system. those seem to be the main things. normally after you fix any of these issues the problems never reoccur just make sure you do ARP studs when you fix that one. and run cat coolant after the oil cooler.

as for how it should be driven... dont drive it like a grandpa and yet dont romp on it all day everyday constantly taking egts over 1500 and what not but yet at the same time make sure you jump on the pedal atleast weekly to get the engine hot and clean out soot and bs that starts to build up like it blows oil from the CCV out of the turbo area and cleans turbo vanes it cleans valves in heads it cleans exhaust manifolds and what not its just good for the 6.0 to romp on it from time to time. and yes the 6.0 can take a very good beating if you wish it to.
im not sure if your gonna do any performance stuff but many people do seem to have good luck on stock headbolts especially in 05-07 models.
