Big difference between the 6.0 and 6.7.

We have 6.7 versions at work and overall they have held up well since 2011.
Naturally the 6.7's re-sell much higher.
Depends on how much you want to spend.

I talked to a friend of mine today at a funeral we went to. He has 3 Dodge's with cumin's in them .2 are down for the count right now and the 3rd one they just put a engine in it a couple of years ago. None of them are bulletproof it seems. My old 7.3 took another shit too! Shocked

Is there any other problems besides the egr after the delete is performed? Heard this was a major problem (egr) ?

Bill is the best source of knowledge out there IMO. Especially on the 6.0's

I like the 6.7 but if you tune and delete it, I'd almost promise you you'll need a turbo. With good tuning, the stockers can live but I wouldn't trust it. I retro swapped a 2015 turbo on my 2012 and love it. Should have come with that turbo from the get go instead of that damn SST piece of junk. If you leave it stock and work it without a lot of idling and short trips, I'd say you'll probably be very happy. Poppa Bear has had a 2012 and now a 2015 6.7 without issue but left them bone stock.
