6.0=awesome!

I just wanted to say that I love my powerstroke. I have a 07 with 150k miles on it. I bought it when it had 80k. It had never been in a shop before the purchase and is still running strong. I have been running matts srl and now running Vivians looney wild. Overall I definitely like this truck more than my old 07 cummins I had! Just thought id share my thoughts haha

Re: 6.0=awesome!

Dude I love my 6.0. Definitely a motor that can hold up to a lot, besides the head gaskets but once you stud it your good. I just love how much abuse the bottom ends can hold up to, un like a 7.3.

Re: 6.0=awesome!

The 07's are awesome, just under 70,000 miles on mine and not a single failure! (knock on wood)

Re: 6.0=awesome!

I ran the dog chit out of my 04 with an extreme street tune as a daily driver and after a year and a half it finally blew the gaskets the only failure other that that was the clutch got toasted on the 4th day but that was just the factory clutch I traded it in for the 06. The funny thing is the local diesel community that thought the only good diesel is the 5.9 or the 7.3 now alot of them drive a 6.0 because they saw how bad I beat on my truck and it held together
