14k Miles - Blown turbo, took out motor while it was at it. Tech said it was not related to tune however, defective turbo. Its an early build 2011 which seems to have the most turbo related issues. Back up and running now with new motor for 2k miles, no issues.

Exactly the type of info I was looking for. Sorry to hear about the turbo/motor issues, but at least it was taken care of. Hopefully others will chime in. More of a informative/factual type of thread, is what I was interested in starting.

Just finished my full delete this weekend... I am headed to Fl from Eastern NM pulling a 15k# goose neck. This is my break in and towing test for mileage. I'll be posting with updates and hopefully no drama!

I'm working on putting the finishing touches on my delete, should be done by Saturday...The delete pipe arrived with a bent flange...

Will be towing deleted the following weekend...Hopefully I won't blow something up.

I bought my truck May of 2010(Job 1), 33,000 miles, 2011 Lariat CC Long Bed 4x4.

Not a hot rodder, just looking for a little better fuel mileage and longer engine life.

I agree 100%, longer engine life and not a hot rodder either! At 4 bones a gallon, I can't afford it!

I for one have about 4,000 miles tuned, and I must admit I have questioned a tick hear or a noise there (paranoid). So far no issues....knock on wood. I love the sound and increased MPG.

Tuned and deleted for 15k miles, drive hot shots for a living, and the tuner has already paid for itself. 19-20mpg at 70, 14 mpg with the empty trailer (40' gn, 8000lbs empty). Just went round trip from Houston to Conway, AR with 15k on the trailer there and 13k coming back, average of 13mpg. Truck is a 2012, job 2, CC dually fx4 with a ranch hand front bumper (block with tires lol)

What kind of tuner do you have? And, what tranny and engine setting do you use when towing?
