So the engine is the same therefore subject to the same potencial failure just at a lower level of probabillity and occurence but still subject to less reliabillity or am I incorrect in my statement? I use to play tournament softball. Our sponser was a Ford dealer, my friend worked as the parts mngr. I visit him quite frequently over the years. Every time I did there was a F350 cab on the lift getting an engine swap. I would testify to this along with conversations about the motor. He told me many times he was glad I had bought the last of te 7.3's I really feel that Ford should have been ordered to have a recall on these motors, I think the low testing time and over engineeing trying to meet emissions ect... was an issue on these 6.0.

The root of Ford's problems with the 6.0 PSD is that it was designed and tested to produce 235 hp, which turns out was well behind the competition (Duramax and Cummins), even back in 2003. So Ford tuned it in the F-series; problems ensued. What's worse is when owners tuned the GM and Dodge trucks, they really really outperformed the PSD. Tuning a PSD to keep up with the Joneses is a sure way to induce engine failure - head gaskets, EGR, turbo, the list goes on and on.

I have never driven a 6.0 so I can not comment but I have a 7.3 and without the intercooler I keep a close watch on the EGT's! I have a Frieghtliner business class FL70 intercooler I will install at some point (17 or more years later)! My fear on the 6.0 is the potential failure in a remote area even D-tuned!
