I guess my father-in-law got lucky with his 2003 6.0L in his old F350. He sold it with over 300k on it, and never had emissions issues. He tuned it around 120k and started having fuel pump/injector issues around 250k, but other than that no issues with the engine. He had to replace the transmission twice within 175k miles due to burning up the O/D clutches, but I that was his fault because he never take O/D off when towing or use tow/haul. After his seconds trans, he took my advice to use tow/haul and take off O/D and he had no problems with the trans lasting.

My son's truck was a total loss when the fuel pump failed and sent metal shards through his engine. Ford knew of this issue but did nothing about it. Ford SHOULD have replaced the fuel pumps on these trucks. The next model year they changed out the fuel pump to a different type...

I will never own a Ford...

On the 6.0? Are you sure you are not mistaking it for the 6.7L? The 6.0L had the same HEUI pump that the 7.3L had, and was not known to grenade like that. If fact, I have never heard of one grenade like that. They just generally loose pressure when they fail.

^ Ya Shiner, but “your” story isn’t near as dramatic and flashy.....
I love just listening to people talk who don’t know a muffler bearing from blinker fluid!

Just last night at sons hockey practice, one of the dads is braggin up his new 38’ TT that he bought last week.
Basically he got one upped by another dad who bought a peenis enlarging 5ver and towed it to the last tourney and “saved money” by not staying in the hotel (for one night, 700 mile round trip...lol). But I digress...
Dad with the new TT, he and the other dude are “camping” this weekends tournament in Boise, cause a $48 RV spot is cheaper than the hotel.... He11 I ran the numbers and it was break even driving the TC over there compared to 3 nights hotel and taking the SRT. Plus with the car I can get to Boise in about 2 hours quicker.
Asked him how it tows (his tow rig is a tundra with about a 8” lift and brodozer wheels, biguns like 37 15.50s or something). He said “great, towed like a dream, still got 15 mpg too.”
I’d love to follow him up Vantage hill and see what he considers a dream!
He’s a dumb arse btw. Nice guy but...wears bedazzled Western jeans and he’s a city slicker.

I'm no fan of the 6.0, but stuff like this is one of the reasons that new trucks are so expensive. The original award was over 10 times the truck's value.

Both the 6.0L and 6.4L "base engine" were designed by Navistar. It was a very "messy" divorce.

Yep!

The 6.9L, 7.3L, 6.0L, and 6.4L were all Navistar engines. The 6.7L was mostly designed and built by Ford.
