Mine made it to 217 k before I'm finally opening my PS. nothing more than service intervals for the whole 217 k. Have the famous HPOP problems now, but have been expecting something to finally give up. My 4 the PSD. Great trucks!

my turbo occasionally sticks in the open position, like after a real hard pull up an on ramp with the boat on the back, then when i let off it and try to get back on it, i just sit there blowing a huge cloud of black smoke. Only happens once in a blue moon, so ill probably let it ride for a bit. My turbo has been finicky for some time now, when the time come ill swap her. 115k with a tune and im pretty happy.

As of November 15, 2014 I know have 267,000 miles on my 6.0L Excursion.

Have done a few maintenance items... but basically the motor is stock except for new injectors, a turbo and new FICM a while back.

Uses no oil and I still run Rotella-Syn 5W-40 and change it every 5,000 miles.

I won't hesitate to jump in a 6.0 if the opportunity arises. ....my cousin can tear up a ball bearing in a bucket of grease but his 03 has almost 200k on it. ..turbos have been the only problem

I'm at 93k on my '05. The only failure with mine was the FICM and that was under warranty. It's never had as much as the EGR valve serviced and runs great.
