Hey Ripper I have a chance to get a 6.0 motor and me being kinda in the dark about the motors I figure I would ask you a few qeustions.
Now the motor in question is or has been in a flood. Yes I know but ive delt with this before and had good results. But those are on the older 350's and 454's anything different I should know about.
Thanks and sorry for the Highjack.
no problem. i'm by no means any sort of an expert but i know that the newer genIII engines seal much better than the older engines. if you've delt with water logged engines before i cant imagine this would be much different.
ive gotten water in my 6.0 and i did everything the same as i normally would with any other engine to get it running again
if you'd like list here's what changed from the older generation engines to the third gen engines like the 6.0
decreased rotating mass for quicker revs
decreased ring friction, yet with better oil / compression control
deeper engine skirt for increased engine rigidity for a decrease in distortion for less noise, friction, wear
six-bolt main bearing caps in lieu of two & four-bolt caps
head design increases volumetric efficiency, therefore more power at all engine speeds
quieter and more efficient valve train operation
new firing order for smoother idle and less vibration throughout the operational range
sequential fuel injection
elimination of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (most engines) by achieving a more complete burn the first time
coil-near-cylinder design; shorter plug wires for a double-hot spark
one coil per spark plug; individual cylinder timing can be tuned on the fly via the PCM and knock sensing
powerful and reliable powertrain control computer with the ability to holistically control more engine (and automatic transmission) processes than ever
throttle-by wire (most models)
all models are internally balanced without any need for balance shafts, etc.
better sealing methods at the engines covers and mating components
displacement-on-demand (DOD) that senses cruising modes and shuts down operation of cylinders for increased fuel economy (starting in some models in 2005)
same overall size as the original Small Block, offering tremendous power output for such a compact size envelope
400,000 mile longevity design
