I have 2 6.0s in my fleet and work on several. There are a couple of them that are stock but have been deleted and have 200K with nothing but FICM, injectors, and HPOP changes. A few more that have similar miles but have had many serious engine repairs. Repairs include cracked pistons, bad cam from failed roller tappet, and injector tip breakage that scored cylinder with no prior warning. The injector tip truck had no fuel filter or fuel pressure issues ever noted and the pressure was 64psi after repairs finished. I know the broken cranks and dropped valves are noted in some small number on 6.7 but they sold more 6.7s in the same number of model years compared to 6.0s. I'm thinking those two trucks present similar risks but the 2011 is a far nicer rig to live with.
