A stock engine in the E series are relatively reliable compared to pickup. They just don't get pushed as hard
That’s a good analysis imo, and not a bad thing to keep in the back of the head. It seems not controlling your right foot is one of the worst things for the 6.0
Yes, to an extent. There engines DO need to be put thru their paces once in a while though. If not, bad things can happen that way too. Mainly the turbo gets coked up and stops working right

Yes I ordered the KD's from KCturbo. I haven't ordered anything else yet, going to order the rest of the stuff tomorrow or Monday but want to get the heads going being they will probably take the longest to get out of any of the parts. As for HG's I will likely go with the felpros being many have had success with those.

Ok looks like my heads might get here much faster than expected, thanks KCTurbo !

I do have one more question for you guys. I'm doing my oil cooler while I have everything apart. As I mentioned earlier this truck may see some on duty time as my hot shot truck and I'm curious if I intend to haul a lot is the stock OEM oil cooler still ok?

I'm keeping the motor stock, aside from it already having a EGR delete, 4" exhaust and the heads/studs ect.. I'm not trying to hot rod this truck so I was going to use the OEM cooler but I want to verify it will be ok for potential heavy hauling. (by heavy I mean, being on the road hauling for a few days at a time or potentially daily short hauls)

You'll be good with the OEM oil cooler. The only other one to use would be the BPD one.

Yep, OEM is fine. You should flush it good before you tear it down if possible. That way anything in the system now won't get in the new cooler. Use lint free rags when you clean out the sump under the cooler, cleanliness here will be your friend. Lots of guys have IPR screens clogging after messing with the oil cooler. Don't pull the old sump screen until you have it cleaned real well then put the new one in. I did my oil cooler back in April, kept it clean and haven't had any trouble.
Also you should switch to Cat EC-1 spec ELC when you put it back together. Gold/G-05 sucks. Cat, Rotella, Texaco, Delo are all good. You're deleted so you "could" use Zerex but it's the only ELC with silicates so most of us avoid it.

Also don't use Roloc discs when you clean your engine deck, most guys like the Super Scraper, not cheap but it's nice and sharp. You run into anything along the way just give a shout.

If it ain't broke...

If you keep the oil cavity as clean and lint free as possible, and don't change the screen until it's clean you shouldn't have any trouble. You may want to pick up an IPR screen kit and have it on hand for a just in case. 3C3Z9H529A, it takes a special socket too.
Another thing, be real careful with all your electric plugs, they should all come apart without breaking any clips if you're careful.
Go to youtube and look for Diesel Tech Ron, he has a lot of good helpful videos

Ok I didn't order that screen kit, guess I'll order it to have on hand just in case. As for everything else, I got my last shipment today which is the head studs and yesterday got my shipment from westlake for all the gaskets/oil cooler and stuff.

ironically the heads were the 1st thing I received.. Thanks again KCturbo.


Now I just have to remember how to put it all back together...

Just did mine and I'm very happy. You won't have any trouble if you take your time. That was some cursing along the process but mainly because weather was too hot sometimes, more than anything on the truck itself. You just loose patience if your work conditions are not ideal. The topside creeper is a must. I didn't read your whole thread but highly recommend one.
