"commonized" newer 6L's

I read somewhere, but can't find the article, that the 6L's built since a few months ago are referred to as commonized and have some improvements made to them.

What are these improvements? Are they significant or minor?

I dont think it is really any sort of improvement as of yet. They are most likely setting up the head jigs and tooling to accept a larger head bolt in the future (6.4l) That is the only reason I can see why they are making room around the injectors and the dowels larger to accept a larger bolt. Maybe the 6.0 guys will be able to utilize this and drill and tap their blocks to acccept the larger fasteners. : Not that they need it or anything....

You know you are doing something right when the Ford dealers call you for parts.
