  • Head Studs and New Head Gaskets are included in our 6.0L Powerstroke Daily Driver Engine
  • We at CHOATE use high strength head studs with a 230K LB tensile strength to increase clamping load of the head paired with an aftermarket gasket that uses a larger fourth layer and cleat to bind the multi-layer steel gasket
  • Full CNC blue print machining on the 6.0L Engine, (bore, deck, hone and line honed)
  • The Cylinder bores are blue print bored to a true 90 degrees from the crankshaft center line, prior to being diamond honed to within .0002 Inch for precise piston to cylinder bore clearances. We main bore and line hone the crankshaft which is honed to precisely align the crankshaft in the engine block. We bore the block back to the crankshaft center line and hone the block to RA13 finish.
  • The piston diameter measured to the nearest .0001 Inch matched to cylinder bores. The Cylinder block is surfaced to a finish of RA30 or lower, which meets the factory specification in both flatness and smoothness for the block to head sealing surface. This is mandatory for proper sealing of a MLS Gasket.
  • Connecting Rods, New Damper and Flexplate for Automatic Transmission.
  • Check both wrist pin and crank pin to rod clearances

Common Issues With The Ford Powerstroke 6.0L Block and Heads (and how we fix them)

Head Gaskets – We at CHOATE Engineering use high strength head studs with a 230K LB tensile strength to increase clamping load of the head paired with an aftermarket gasket that uses a larger fourth layer and cleat to bind the multi-layer steel gasket.
Excess sand from casting process – Excess sand from the manufacturing process helped clog the oil cooler creating bearing issues, fuel system issues as well as VGT turbo and EGR issues.

By use of our extensive cleaning methods thru media blasting, furnaces, spray cabinets, hot tanks, and ultrasonic equipment, we at CHOATE Performance do this to protect your investment.
Head Cracks – The 6.0L Power Stroke cylinder heads from Ford are known to crack around the injector cup, leaking fuel into the coolant system.

Our heads feature much thicker castings in this problematic area.

Optional Parts are not installed. Optional parts are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty and not by CHOATE.
