heavy mod questions

Im fairly new to modding diesels i just got my 2000 7.3 a little less then a year ago and i love it. Im wanting to do some heavy mods on my truck. Like stage 3 injectors, GTP38R Turbo. Already have a few things done to it. i am aware of some of the precautions to take to handle the mods. My question is my truck has 225k miles, is my truck going to be able to handle these heavy mods with this many miles?? Would this be a bad idea or does it not matter since 225k isnt MANY miles on a diesel ?? thanks for anyones input

Custom tune it and you should be ok. But of course, never a guarantee.

I wouldn't use a 38r with Hybrids...get a Moded H2e kit and have a dam near bullet proof turbo unlike a 38r.
