Your warranty is in serious jeporady when you start modifying. I would be much more concerned with exhaust valve failure than connecting rod failure.

2 different times in the past, 2 different companies were doing some modifications and high HP tuning when they suffered catastrophic engine failure from bent rods. I believe the problem was all in the tuning, as I have not seen any rod issues since.

And if you tune/delete, you are kissing your power train warranty goodbye.

List of concerns on 11's and early 12's is turbo then valves.

Some of the very early build 1 F-450's did have a few throw rods. Haven't heard of any in 350 and below (differant engine tunes and turbos)

Like said above. I don't think bent rods are an issue for stock.

From what I've read is bent rods in the f250 and 350s occurs when massive amount of bottom end torque is added. Such as compound turbos.

My January 2011 build F350 6.7 just came out of the shop with a brand new long block from Ford. Exhaust valve failure caused catastrophic failure to crank shaft, cylinders and pistons. Blew right through the oil pan. I had 36,600 easy drive to work miles on it. So it's not just the 450/550. Don't believe that for a second.
