Decisions to make!? 6.0 build or sell?
I have a 05 2 door long bed 6.0. It's in pretty good shape. It has a egr block off, coolant filter and some sort of tune. I put brand new tires on the new 20" aftermarket wheels.l that were on it when I bought it. It has 128,000 miles on it now. I paid 9k for it worh 124k miles. I put new bilstein 5100s on it, and rebuilt the front end. Ball joints, axle joints and all seala, and rear u joints. I am having turbo issues (probably needs a new turbo) and I know it needs new up pipes because they are cracked. I owe nothing on the truck. It dosent have studs or anything. Has some sort of tune but unknown what it is.
The head gasket isn't blown yet. But I am
wondering, should I pay the money to have the top end of the motor 100% done, push rods, rockers, new oil cooler, machine heads and install the wire and new o rings, head studs, head gaskets, everything else for $5,000, do a t4 turbo upgrade kit and a S364.5 turbo and 155/30 injectors done for another $3,000 or just sell the truck or just fix the up pipes and turbo and ride it out. It will be/ was my daily driver about a week ago. I've owned the truck for about a month and a half.
