Just picked up an 04 6.0 with 188k on it and need some advice. Engine is untouched other than an intake and supposedly BD ported headers.
This is a weekend truck for us and I don't need to burn the tires off. I do plan on pulling a light/medium size 5th wheel which should be about 10# max.
My question is should I just drive it or invest in a tune and bullet proofing, or just a light tune. I had a light tune on my GMC gasser and it ran much better than stock without dumping a bunch of money into parts. It was much more drivable. Same situation for the 6.0 or would I need to start with the bullet proof upgrades to keep it safe.
Just drive it around and enjoy it, get to know it and youll figure out what you want/need to upgrade. This will at least save you from digging into the motor multiple times. I can see bigger injectors and turbo in your future.
Need some help looking in the right direction. I've been working out some minor issues with my new to me 2004 6.0l. From what I can tell the engine is stock. Thought I had everything dialed in and it was running great. I decided to take my travel trailer for a short trip to see how it would...
