can i put a chip in or not!

first thing being said: truck has 317000 miles

i planned on puttin a DP chip in my 99 7.3. trucks has never had anything before, chip, programmer injectors nothin. i planned on given her a rebirth sorta deal

dad found out i was strait piping my stock exhaust and wasnt happy and even suprised even though i told him about it? he knows i have a chip in my future and apparently he asked his mechanic at the shop what he thought if i put a chip in it with that many miles. mechanic said "it will blow up for sure less than 500 miles after he puts it in" then dad went on to say if it blows he aint payin it and all that **** and if i want a chip i gotta get a low end one.

DP aint low and i want 'er. so you guys need to tell me what you think, cause youre the experts: can i put a nice chip in my truck with 317k on it? (even though i might not wanna hear the answer tell me the truth so i still have some wheels)

thanks
jake

In my opinion i would fix the leak and then maybe look into buying a set of guages or a chip and guage combo.
