Hello, is there a radiator with more cooling capacity for the 6.0? Mine doesn't look good anymore and I want to replace it.
Or should I buy an original part?

You are in Germany, what are your choices? Where can you source it?

Here in Germany there is unfortunately nothing to buy for the 6.0 or four times as expensive as in USA.
I would like more cooling capacity

I am puzzled by you wanting more cooling capacity. I and my customers pull 18000 to 22000 pound loads of hay in summer (40C-42C) and the stock radiator keeps it cool unless fan clutch isn't working or radiator airflow is bad due to grass, bugs, or mud in radiator fins.
I still do not know what to tell you as where you can get your parts will determine what radiator choices I might suggest. There are radiators offered for 6.0 trucks that do not have the correct side members and the fan shroud is 13-14mm away from sealing to the sides of radiator, even these seem to have no issues with cooling but I do not use them. I have used Nissens brand and Motorcraft. Motorcraft is a safe choice. There is a radiator that is sold as extra capacity and is all aluminum from Performance Cool and others. I know people using these in their trucks and have had no issue.
