Power Stroke or Cummins?

Me and my buddy who has a Cummins, are arguing which motor will last longer.

My motor has exactly 164,001 miles on it, and his has 31,XXX.

I run 2-stroke in every tank to keep it slippery, and his was built for ULSD.

I've never had any problem out of my motor, I run it hard, and it loves it.
