High mileage 6.4

Would anyone be afraid of a hi mileage truck with a 6.4? From what I can tell it has not been modded but has 173000 miles on it. Starts and drives fine. What do I look for on the 6.4?
Long story short I traded in my z06 vette for a 2012 f250 last year and now I am missing my vette and want to get another one. Want to trade down trucks in order to get another z

if possible drive it pulling a heavy trailer or other load to make sure it doesn't throw the hpfp code of death.

Re: High mileage 6.4

Ok, I'll do some searching on that code. From what I gathered from searching if deleted it should be alright. Is that right?

Yea that's right. I just bought an 08 with 112,000 miles with egr and dpf already deleted and it came with an h&s tuner. Truck performs like a tank!

you mean dpf deleted? that's a good thing, but not much to do with the hpfp. they go bad from even tiny amounts of moisture present mainly due to previous owners not draining the water and/or a crappy design depending on who you ask.

imo 173k miles is a bit high. if something breaks itll probably cost a lot. me personally rather have a reliable truck and work on a hot rod than vice versa.

Yes, I would delete the dpf and already have h&s for it. Just not familiar with the 6.4. Don't want to get into expensive repairs. I only put about 5k miles a year on my trucks. My past experiences with diesel are they will go for hundreds of thousands of miles if taken care of. That is why I was was considering this route.
