Life of '12 stock turbo

I been waiting on a warranty to run out before deleting. I have the race tuner in a box awaiting the much anticipated day of installation.

However, as quickly as I been hearing turbos fail after deleting, I am wondering if me leaving the DPF on for 36,000 miles may shorten the life of the turbo and blow up a lot sooner if I would have deleted it from the get go. Anyone have experience with waiting for the warranty and how long the turbos last after delete. I don't plan on hot rodding the truck but do want the power and to get the stupid emissions off.

Good part though is it seems like there are some good turbo kits coming out from good companies other than y'all know who. So if the turbo dies, I can replace it with a much better turbo.

Feel free to chime in on y'all's experience. Thanks in advance!

Same here. Having a brand new turbo right off the bat would be nice and good info to share if it does die on how long it lasted while deleted.

Turbos dying were a common theme in early tune due to commanding higher boost than stock, this in turn, over speeded the turbos causing them to grenade. I think all the tuning companies have commanded less boost in attempt to keep the turbo closer to it's happy place. Keep in mind, there have been stock trucks that have had turbo problems, it has a super long shaft due to the dual compressor wheel which puts a lot of stress on the bearings. That's why kits with a single compressor wheel are becoming more popular.

And they have the new hyper-balanced turbo they are replacing the failures with.

Any one know the difference between Ford's version of the Garrett 3271 and an actual Garrett 3271? I know everyone says these turbos are crap but what if one were to buy a replacement from a Garrett dealer? Would it bolt in or has Ford changed enough of the turbo that it has to be a "Ford" version to fit?
