New heads as suggest. + whatever everyone suggested and while you’re there, new lifters and push rods. It’s a free truck - throw some
Money at it and it will be one solid truck - especially if 5k miles a year!

Can confirm not cheap at all to swap the engine and really not that easy either of course once I finish this one it will probably be a lot quicker next time around.

I'll add to @junior125 post and say I can't see doing all the work to swap a Cummins into a super duty. It's a lot of time and cash for something that can be replaced easy enough, don't like the 6.0 buy an older 7.3 or newer 6.7, hate it so much not to want another ford buy Ram or GM.

The EGR does to your engine what smoking does to your lungs.

Remember you can always improve on a design until the EPA gets involved.

This thing has yet to be properly diagnosed. And we're throwing new engines or heads at it!
Pressure test the cooling system first. Is there any signs of coolant puking from the cap on the degas bottle? Have you checked the EGR valve?

Pull the EGR valve and see if it's wet or dry. Put a T in the 3/8"line going to the degas and plumb in a pressure gauge (run it up by the wipers or side mirror where you can see it) and get it up to temp, release the pressure (carefully) then watch the gauge on a couple WOT runs, if it stays under 15 psi and doesn't fluctuate with the throttle then look for a different problem.

Sounds like the shops that it's been to must have used these...



And yes, like G8tor and Bill said, no problem with 200K as long as the truck has been maintained

I believe that the OP just wants us to confirm a new engine is needed (hope I am wrong!) .....

Unfortunate too, because it is so easy to test some of the big things yourself.

So many shops bring in a lot of money off of the 6.0L trucks, due solely to their "reputation", which in turn continues to add to the bad reputation. Lots of people have been taken to the cleaners unnecessarily - when they take the truck in without being prepared and educated.
