    I don't know if I would cuss the V10's. A friend works for the local transit company and says the V10's in their E450 busses go 425K miles unless a freak grenade happens. When the 6.0 diesels first came out, that was the end of them buying diesels.

    Not really cussing them on a reliability issue it’s more of a power issue. I am right at 19k now and my 6.0 pulls it perfectly fine. The other mechanic I work with has the v10 and is about 3k less then me and that thing is a turd. We have had good luck with the 6.7 ps once you put an aftermarket egr cooler on them. I wish they would use these instead.
