Tuner= blown up turbo??

Does anyone get any decent amount of miles out of their 6.7 with a tuner and not blow up their turbo? I read about the blown turbo from tuners A LOT!! And who knows how many we don't hear about on the forum.

I have recently put a spartan tuner on mine. Will be running the warhammer tune on it. Runs great. As for issues, I have also read about some guys having the blown turbos either tuned or not. From what I read is it is mostly guys with 2011 trucks and the cab-chasis trucks. So I am hoping that if I keep good care of it and don't try and tear it up I should be good. If the turbo is going to go then it would most likely go stock or tuned in my opinon.

Hell of an assumption. Be hard to lose one without the motor running, one way or another.

The turbo could very well survive stock and fail after being tuned. Higher boost means higher load and an increased likelihood of failure.

I do think that the higher boost could increase the likelihood of failure but I feel that there have been problems with some of these turbos and seem to happen with both stock and modded trucks.

Most of the ptoblems are from c\c trucks because of no waste gate. If you drive like an idiot all the time then yes you are looking at a blown turbo. So to sum it up it can happen but most are caused by operater of the truck ie. Maintanace , driving stupid

Mine has been tuned since january with no issues. The only problem I had is when I had some bad noids in the tranny way before i tuned it. Been tuned for 5000 miles so far no issue. I do want to upgrade my turbo though just for peice of mind and more power from the mcc software.
