    Default 6.0 Powerstroke letter

    Got this in the mail yesterday. Luckily both of my 6.0 engines (04 & 06) were trouble free. Any of you get this letter?

    The local diesel mechanic has had quite a few come thru for the normal stuff- egr and head gaskets. One fellow in our area loves the 6.0. He does the head bolt swap and egr mods and they run forever. He currently has one with right at 300k.

    Yes I got one last week I had a early dec 02 build 2003 F350 6.0 had two turbos one under warranty one not. Dumped truck after they refused to help me with second turbo in 5 k miles.

    Loved the truck and tranny the engine was not an improvement from the 7.3 If I would have gotten the 7.3 I would still have it

    yeah those seem to be the common problems with the 6.0. correct those issues and you have a pretty reliable engine for a long time from what I hear. I see alot of 6.0's running around town. My friend who has a landscaping business has a 6.4 F-450 and when he first got it, the fuel mileage was crap and he had some issues with it. took off all the emissions stuff, put a tune on it and that thing runs like a scalded dog now! hasn't had a lick of trouble with it since.
