Re(4): Purchasing a used diesel truck Posted on 1/9/2018 at 00:49:33 AM by whatever
The "bulletproof" 2006 will be an excellent truck. Those 6.0 diesels will run 1,000,000 miles if they are properly bulletproofed. The original failure involved an egr valve leaking coolant into the cylinder, then the piston would slam into the incompressible coolant on the upstroke and push a head gasket after the head bolts had been stretched.
When you delete EGR and install ARP bolts/studs, that motor will run forever!! No exhaust DEF equipment to break. If you trust that the powerstroke bulletproof work is correct, I'd recommend that one.
