All 6.0's have issues, and require "bulletproofing" at some point in time. Read up on the following issues; Headgaskets (issues wtih facory TTY head bolts), oil cooler clogging/failure, & EGR failures. I dont want to scare you off, these engines work great when maintained.

welcome to the org! i would not buy a 6.0 but if you do there is a lot of great info on this site and alot of guys willing to help you out. If you buy it, dont it expect to never have an issue and any diesel is big money repairs no matter what engine it has.

Be sure to get a good monitor to watch your deltas if the Banks doesnt do it.
Im using an SCT programmer with an Edge insight monitor.
