September 15, 2008Yep...stay away from the 03s ... the later versions - 05 06 07 were better motors were not as prone to blowing the head gaskets as the earlier ones, but they will still do it if you push the motor with a tuner, and heavy foot... the EGR has issues too.
The head gasket issues can be fixed by installing the new style head gasket as well as head studs and blocking off the EGR ..
