3k miles deleted, currently stranded!
Since I'm currently waiting on a tow I figured I'd post up. My truck is an '11 with 91,400 miles. Zero problems until this point. Finally talked myself into deleting the truck @ 88,700 even though I have a 200k mile engine warranty. Installed 5" DP back exhaust w/ muffler, intake, egr blocker plates, and h&s street tuner with Hot-x MCC tuning.
Took my 9 y/o daughter to the FSU game, as we were just getting out of town, still in heavy traffic, I heard a pop and had a ton of smoke behind me. I drive like a Grandma and the tuner was on the stock setting, knowing about all the turbo problems I have definitely been easy on her.
Needless to say, this sucks and all these parts will be for sale very soon. Also sucks sitting here in a parking lot in the 91° sun waiting on my wife, we live 2 hrs away, at least we can watch movies I guess.
Lesson to be learned, if you are like me and have been sitting on the fence about deleting for a while like I was, the better MPG's and cool sounding truck were nice but at this moment definitely not worth it.
