I never know what to think when an ad talks about a 'new' engine, especially when they don't address why it has a new engine.

Seems well equipped.

Our service engineering did a study on rebuilt engine and their manufactures. I do NOT remember the exact number but the failure rate of those engines was much, much higher then OEM engines. Thank goodness that engines in general are very reliable w low failure rates...so much, much higher is still a fairly low failure rate .... unless yours is the one that blows.

Isn't '03-04 the years that the 6.0 was most likely to have issues?

I know that to be true for the Excursions (it was a mid-year cutover) so i wouldn't be surprised if the same was true for the E-series. The F-series cut over at the beginning of the year.
