If you want a diesel that can run flawlessly without proper maintenance at the recommended intervals, then the 6.0L is probally not for you. The 6.0L Power Stroke is very sensitive to neglect, and owners who extend the service intervals of their engine are the most likely to experience problems. If you are prepared to stay current on the engines maintenance, there is no reason to avoid the 6.0L Power Stroke. If you are in the market to "hot rod" your diesel, the 6.0L can be adequately equipped to handle massive performance levels with a set of performance head studs and an upgraded EGR system.
WITH ANY DIESEL PROPER MAINTENANCE IS THE KEY.
