Can I expect 300K + miles?

Hello everyone, about 6 months ago I had a major hard on for a 6.4 and came across a Job 2 extended cab 08 with 92k. Well I put about 70-80 miles on it a day commuting to college, and now I'm up to 110xxx miles. I have a DPF delete and run a H&S XRT tuner. The truck is in the shop now for probably nothing more than a sensor (about 1 in 10 times it shifts rough on the 2-3 or 3-4 shift when its cold and it did not shift into OD the other day and I got the wrench icon, but it ran PERFECTLY fine after...) They are finding nothing wrong with it BTW (so far..) Well it cant help but make me wonder. Im only 20 years old and going to college daily and A LOT of miles are being put on the truck, Im worried my motor wont last all that long because I don't know much about the 6.4. My dad has a 7.3 and we lmpw the 6.4 is better than the 6.0 but how much better? Basically I would like be able to get at least 300K out of this truck..... If routine maintenance is done can I expect this? Thanks guys.

Why is the 6.4 better than the 6.0? I love my 6.0. If you take care of the truck, it'll last. But if your runnin a high hp tune it's gonna take it's tole.

4 out of 5 people I know have had MAJOR problems with there 6.0s. Now Im not saying all are like this, and a lot of 6.4's have had many problems too. I usually run my XRT on the 80hp setting.

there is a thread on here somewhere about high mileage 6.4s and there are quite a few of them running around. take a look at that thread and see what they've done to get there. from what i remember, there seemed to be a pretty even mixture of guys running "tuned" trucks and guys running stock trucks. i would suspect it will boil down to maintenance and how the truck is driven.

I'm hoping for the same. I have had my truck for two years and have put almost 90k on it. I'm hoping to get well over 250k. I'm currently only running dpf delete on stock HP (trans only tune). But the way I look at it, if I can get 250k out of it and the engine takes a dump, I'm thinking I'll drop a Cummins in it. Love the truck, don't want another one.

The last run of the 6.0's 05.5 thru 07's had less warranty claims than the last years of the 7.3's.
If taken care of any diesel will last 300k, not including turbo's/injectors/pumps.

You'll be fine if you take care of your 6.4
