Star Pattern

You might see a star pattern on one or more of your pistons if your heads are off of your 6.0L Powerstroke engine. This comes from over-fueling the engine and changing the spray pattern. Often, this is an indication that an aftermarket tuner was used, but Diesel Tech tells us that they have definitely seen this happen on completely stock Powerstrokes as well.
