i dont get it.. ya'll must really beat the crap out of your trucks to have gasket issues, egr issues, white smoke, loss of coolant issues.. 4 years i have had my truck, and the only issues i hve had are turbo issues, which happened while in 100% stock trim... now i have SCT xCal2, innovative tuning and the truck is great.. i dont baby it, but i dont hot rod it either.. what are ya'll doing to cause this?? or is it just bad luck??

I still think most of the problems occur from continued high egts. Like towing a 5er and running the truck at 1200* for a long period of time, pumping all that hot exhaust into the egr, boiling the coolant. I almost never see over 1000* and I have yet to have any problems, even running on Looney for 15k.
