Do the commonized 6.0 Motors Puke More?

Seems from what I read here the commonized 6.0 motor seem to puke more....does that seem right? is that motor any better the the one before it?
I think mine is a CM and I have 13000 miles on it and have had new EGR/Oil Cooler, Head Gaskets, and 1 Head. :shrug:

If your's is a Job2 '06 or '07, it's a commonized engine.

The modifications dealt with casting and machine work around the injector hold down bosses and head locating dowels.
I doubt there's much difference in the reliability of the HGs.

I haven't experienced any issues that you described with my Job 2 '06.

Could be, I know that my 04 has never puked any coolant at all in 40k miles. I have towed 11k up 6%-7% grades in 115-118 degree temps in the summers here in AZ...I hear a lot of people complaining about puking, never experienced it at all, thank God!!

A job2 engine is actually less likely to blow a head seal due to the changes in both the casting material and the structure of the raw head casting itself.

The casting "webs" and structure were changed in order to prevent the catastrophic upward warpage of the center of the cylinder head; the main cause of the large majority of head seal failures in general.
