the common fixes for the 6ohs are like the egr delete kit, studs for the heads,.. i think theres more but thats on the top of my mind at the moment. theres a lot of 6ohs owners here to help ya.

welcome. the 6.0's arent as bad as the horror stories you heard. i owned 2 of them and never had any major problems. if you treat it right, it will treat you right. sometimes theres a bad apple in the bunch tho but that goes for every vehicle.
