I've heard of very few cases of bent pushrods in the 6.0L or 6.4L(low single digits in the past 7 years of the motor being released.) My 6.0L is pushing every bit of 1000rwhp and so is Shawn Ellerton's, both with stock pushrods. If there is a pushrod issue, it's a mechanical failure. 500rwhp definitely isn't overpowering the stock components.

I've heard of a handful over on the ORG, but it seemed to be from over-rev on they dyno in most cases.
