How soon after programmer installed till the 6.0 grenades?
I just installed the tunes from my SCT x3 and am blown away by the performance gains. I have a Lincoln LS that I had in for service today and while their had a discussion with a Diesel Mechanic. The subject turned to my 6.0 and I asked how so much can be gained by installing a programmer (No this isn't the dealer I take the truck to) and he explained why. He also said that the engine will destroy itself in time anyway, why speed up the process by installing something it can't handle. We talked about head studs and the likes and he said that they were only band aides and that the 6.0 will grenade. Not if but when. So I guess my question is this; How many miles have you seen with a programmer without problems?
He also said to not let the EGT's get over 1,100 because that little turbo will begin to melt apart. He had seen it time and time again. He said the big turbo on the 7.3 was able to handle the heat soooo much better.
