Tuning and Turbo Questions

How many trucks are running tuning on the stock turbo? How many have had turbo trouble?

How many have a stock truck with turbo failure?

What I am getting at is how/why would deleting restrictive Emmisions equipment kill a stock turbo (rods another story due to the increase in boost and ramp up timing)?

I will end up with an aftermarket single but I'm just not entirely grasping why stock turbos (driven normally) would die from tuning...........

I will end up with an aftermarket single but I'm just not entirely grasping why stock turbos (driven normally) would die from tuning........... You hear the few horror stories, but hundreds of thousands of stock turbos are fine. (knock knock)

Thought it would be easier to put my opinion above ^^^

As stated, there are thousands running tuning on stock turbo. Most turbo failures are C&C models. And the tuning has came a long way to keep the turbo in its range to prevent failures

tuning for H&S alone has gone from 34psi to 24-26 psi max on Performance tune.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a C&C model? Seen it referenced a few times but I can't figure it out.
