The number of TSBs honestly doesn't mean shit. Ford always promotes TSBs, the same way they tend to promotebeing in the media. They don't see it is as a negative. Some of the TSBs I have been involved in are rediculous.

This time when the EGR cooler went, the heads were fine.
yep, installing headstuds and doing an EGR delete will save a "good 6.0" You can always run an Oasis report on the 6.0 to see what its history is. I love my 02 Super Duty with the 7.3. There is more power potential out of the 6.0 once you have taken care of the headstuds and EGR shit. If you dont do these 2 things, when you blow a head gasket from streched head bolts you have to remove the cab off the truck to repair things, there is little to no room in the engine bay.
