Question 6.4 helpppp!!!!

ok i recently bought a 2008 6.4 ford f-250 and fell in love. well at 10000 miles she was already getting old and i found my self on the side of the road with a exhaust that could spit fire!!! i know about regen mode and i found out i blew my seals on my turbos... well replaced them and right after warenty gave out. ok at 138889 miles on the truck and love it!! i very recently did a DPF delete with a 5in afe bladerunner exhaust and tuned it with a xrt pro tuner, and afe intake. i love it i only run the wild tune(125-150)hp and i beat any chevy!!! but the problem is that with a 138889miles on it does this have to be a huge concern of running a truck with this many miles?!!on a tune?!! ive seen people say something about the high pressure fuel system giving out and something about oil rings. i know adout diesels and have been working with them for a long time, just this time i really dont know.

change fuel filters every 10k, oil every 3-5k, delete egr, flush coolant, watch temps and treat it like a pickup truck, not a civic with a fart pipe

I think as long as you maintain it you should be fine. There are several high mileage 6.4's that are still running strong.

I'd change the fuel filters every 10,000 miles if I were you. Unless the filters are giving you reason to do so otherwise. Oil every 5k is fine. Maintenance is king on these trucks. If you offend the king, prepare for your punishment.

You can blow the motor on any tune. But one that is under 150HP is probably safe.

If your EGTs are high, what are they? Also, what are your ECT/EOT?
