Thumbs up 2007 Ford F250 6.0 L Powerstroke

Ok, first of all, I'm new in the diesel world of trucks. I own a 2004 Ford F150 "L", and I've been toying with the idea of buying a 2007 Powerstroke. In fact, I just learned about the engine issues with the PSD and spent the last 5 hours reading forums and searching the net for info (problems, complaints), to be more specific, on the last year of the 6.0 L diesel.

Here's my dilemma. I can get a real good deal on a beautiful brand new 2007 F250 4x4 Crew Cab Lariat Powerstroke with 3.73 gears, 20" tires, etc. or... I can wait until 2009 and get either the new 6.4L PSD (hopefully by then they'll have all the bugs worked out) or the 6.8 L V10 (if is not discountinued). The fact is that I never buy a new model the first year is introduced. My dad had bought many vehicles and taught me that from his own experience! In addition, I kind of don't like much the looks of the new F250s, either.

Anyway, could anyone knowledgeable on the 6.0 L tell me if the 2007 Powerstrokes have been ironed out and are more reliable or at least acceptable in terms of durability and trouble-free maintenance? Even though, I can get this '07 PSD at a really good price considering MSRP and dealer cost, it's still a lot of dinero! And I don't want headaches with a brand new truck.

Plz, I need advise as soon as possible since I have to make up my mind and contact the dealer before they sell this truck to someone else.

Thank you guys in advance for any useful info you may provide.

Not much help, because it only has 30,000 miles on it, but I have an '06 F250 with the 6.0, and it has not had so much as a hiccup yet.

3.73 axle, 6-speed manual trans - gets 20+ mpg on the highway in the summer, 17 or so around town. Drops by 2-3 mpg in the winter - partly cold weather making the trans and diff lube stiffer, partly the #1/#2 fuel blend.

thanx, steelken. did you get a k&n cold air intake or just the filter? also, is k&n supposed to be the best cold air system one for the 6.0l powerstroke?
take care.
