Do modifications cause failure or shorten life?
I have an 06' powerstroke with a Superchips FlashPaq, ColdAir intake and a Banks Monster exhaust. I have a few friends that have owned this same truck and are telling me horror stories of how thier transmissions or turbos went away and suggested that I take all the fun stuff off my truck and return it back to the way it came.
Now, both of these guys tow large trailers and could drive like hammerheads too. I don't tow anything and drive it like I want it to last (of course a drift out is necessary every so often). I have had my oil tested at Blackstone and everything looked great for a Powerstroke with 10k miles on it. Can anybody shed any light on this out there? The truck is stock height and is not lifted in case you were wondering.
