Performance vs. Stock

I wonder if the people who buy these trucks and turn them into high horsepower monsters have any of the same problems that stock trucks have as far as the engine goes. Just trying to see if all the expensive parts will actually help save your engine or help you tear it up quicker. Just curious bc normally the people that go all out on the 6.4's as far as performance goes don't have very many problems.

There are actually 2 groups on this. One, those that think adding 300 additional HP will improve an engines longevity with no side effects. Two, those that think running closer to stock minus the emissions will improve the longevity of the engine.

What it comes down to though is, how group one uses that power. Like above, there are two groups on this. The ones that drive normal and the ones that race from one stop light to the next. The second group is more likely to have ill effects imo.

So running my tuner on stock minus all the emissions is worse then if I turned it up a notch or so. And of course I would have to moniter my right food.

Leaving it stock, love it as it is and fully believe Ford did a great engineering job. Trucks dont need to be fast, Corvettes are for that.

I like it better without the crap, not stock. I think it would give the vette a run for its money too, in a straight line of course.
