Whats the avg mileage of a 6.0 psd that goes kaput for good? And what happens to them? I dont find any 6.0 on craigslist for sale with anything over 250k, but ive found 7.3's with over 350k for sale. My early 04 has 227.3k and runs perfect.

:hehe:

Whenever they decide to swallow a lifter. It is like the age-old question "How many licks to the center of a tootsie pop?"

So...if you take care of a 6.0L...it's inevitable that a lifter will fall apart and thats how they will all eventually die?

Since you have to basically take the engine completely down to replace the lifters...few will ever replace them ahead of a failure. And what would you put back in? OEM lifters?

I have a hard time accepting a lifter is what will ruin the engine. Not that it won't do the job of killing the engine...just sucks that it all comes down to something thats been around for a hundred years...and somehow they messed it up. Lifters in anything else last about a million miles.

I would say a 6.0 is done for good when a piston shoots out the side of the block or launches the head through the hood and rips the deck surface off.

Like already been said, take care of it and it will take care of you.

Part of the reason you are seeing more high mileage 7.3's than 6.0's is because they are older, thus giving more time to rack up more miles. Another couple years and you will start seeing a lot more high mileage 6.0's
