Asheville 6.0 Powerstroke Engine
- Usually Ships in 2-3 Weeks
(Interchangeable with the 6.0 International VT 365)
Properly re-manufactured with new parts. All 6.0 Long Blocks come standard with ARP head studs. Use the drop down list to select year model and any available upgrades that you might want.
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you purchase Driven Break-In oil with your engine. It is the only diesel specific break in oil on the market. It can be purchased on our web site for $119.00 for 4 gallons and can be shipped at NO EXTRA CHARGE with your re-manufactured engine.
#1 most recommended upgrade by our customers who have purchased one.
Manufactured to our own specifications, an Asheville Engine stage 2 camshaft provides a smoother transition and less stress for the valves, spools the turbo quicker, drops the EGT’s, adds approximately 45 HP and can provide better fuel mileage.
These heads also have a special high performance valve cut which allows up to 30% more airflow. O-ringed heads allow for a better head-to-block combustion seal helping to avoid the problem of blown head gaskets. (Long block only)
High Rev Valve Train Upgrade:
Includes a high rev valve spring set with retainers and thick walled heavy duty Chromoly push rods. For use in high rev applications up to 5,000 RPMs. When matched with the Asheville Engine Stage 2 Camshaft you can expect a smooth power curve. (Long block only)
Balanced Rotating Assembly:
We offer this option as an upgrade for those people who want a perfectly balanced engine. If you don’t understand the “balancing” and would like to learn why you might, or might not want it done, scroll to the bottom of this page and click on our blog “Balancing a Powerstroke diesel engine”.
Keep in mind that we own a $35,000 balancing machine and we make money balancing an engine but we will not lie to you to tell you that it is necessary. Most shops charge a lot more to do one but we keep the cost to a minimum for those people who want it done. If we were building a Nascar engine that runs at 9,800 RPM, we would tell you that it has to be done.
Polydyn Performance Ceramic Piston Coating:
PolyDyn HS ceramic piston coating protects and insulates to maintain structural integrity and to reduce potential engine failure. The HS’s extreme heat insulating polymers reduce heat saturation into the piston, which maintains more heat in the combustion chamber. This allows more fuel and less timing, thus building more power.

PolyDyn DL Bearing Coating:
PolyDyn DL is specifically designed to permeate the bearing surface, increasing oil retention to protect against intense heat and extreme pressure. This dramatically reduces bearing wear and flaking, and adds an extra level of lubricant to the bearing. This also protects the bearing from heat build up and excessive wear.

Wagler Connecting Rods:
The choice of brand is up to you but we recommend Wagler because we don’t have to clearance the block for installation. Billet connecting rods are recommended for applications in which you plan to build an engine capable of exceeding 650 horsepower.
Carillo Connecting Rods:
Probably the most well-known brand of billet connecting rods. Billet connecting rods are recommended in high horsepower applications over 650 horsepower.
Custom Age 625+ Head Studs: (Long Block Only)
All Custom Age 625+ studs are centerless ground, heat treated prior to thread rolling and machining, and are nominally rated at 270,000 psi. These fasteners deliver a 40% increase in tensile strength over the OEM Torque to Yield (TTY) head bolts.
