what to look out for when buying a 6.0l bulletproofed engine?
I've been looking at buying an e-450 chevy shuttle bus, with 200k miles and a bulletproofed 6.0l engine. I know everyone hates this engine, and I'm a little worried too, so I was hoping I could get your experienced perspective!
The seller has 10 years of maintenance records for the bus, he is asking for 7k to buy the bus. As for the bulletproofing, I need to take a look, I know they upgraded the EGR and turbo, what else should I make sure was done? (I'm trying to get a mechanic to take a look, its been hard finding one willing to go to the auction lot).
My next question, am I wearing pink glasses? The market has been dry here in MN and this is a perfect size bus with very minimal rust (especially for where I live). It's hard not to want to pull the trigger.
Thank you all so much!
