Hey guys, ive recently been quoted 1800 labor to do head studs. Ive been doing a lot of thinking and realize everybody is going to go with ford on this one but im trying to decide if i should keep dumping money into this 6.0 or if i should trade it for a 2002 lb7 with 30% over injectors. it has 257k miles on it and my 6.0 has 147k on it. ive had it almost a year and have a upgraded tci trans pan, sinister coolant filter, new oil cooler, s&b cai, blue spring kit, new egr valve, and a sinister egr cooler. what are yalls thoughts on the longevity of this truck and if this would be a wise trade for the lb7. not really sure on what im going to do but if this truck isnt going to last another 150-200k miles i dont want to dump anymore money into it. I take really good care of it and do all of my maintenance on time and i dont really tow that much or beat the crap out of it.
Do you think you could drive the 2002 lb7 another 150 to 200k without dumping more $$ in it, im sure the 6.0 will need $$ as well, pretty big decision. Glad i dont have to make it
