welcome to the Org...

i really dont hear that much about injector problems on the 6.0L...

the main stuff that can go wrong is EGR and headstuds....

if you want to do some preventative mods then do a EGR delete and ARP headstuds... but its not cheap.. labor on headstud work is in the 1k+ range...

hope this helps... let us know i you have any other questions

-Raul

RUN SOME DIESEL KLEEN OR STANADYNE TO CLEAN AND LUBE THE INJECTORS, SINCE THE NEW ULTRA LOW SULFUR FUEL HAS NO LUBRICITY.

The best thing you can do for your injectors is to keep your fuel and oil filters changed and keep up to date on regular maintenance. A bypass oil filtration system such as the FS-2500 is also a good idea. The '03 C94 injectors were a little more quirky than the later models. IIRC Ford went to C95s after May '03 builds.
Head studs are a good idea on even stock applications, but I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you are experiencing problems. And yes the EGR is the valve that you have read about cleaning. Read this article for more info on the system, I'm too lazy to type it all out,, http://www.forddoctorsdts.com/articl...icle-05-01.php
