modding a high mileage 6.4

hey guys i just got a 6.4 not to long ago. the truck has over 220,00 miles on it i got it real cheap is the only reason i bought it. i just got in my h and s tuner straight pipe and CAI last night. i was just wondering is modding this truck going to cause big problems or do you think it can still handle it?

I don't think you would be hurting it by putting that stuff on but you would be letting it breathe better. Your right foot might hurt it though. Just kidding I'm sure it would be fine if you drive it sensibly like not wide open all the time. Just some I the time.

Well highway miles are alot easier on any vehicle so that's a good thing. How many hours are on it in the setup screen

Heck no if that truck has 350,000 km which is about 220,000 miles then that works out to 64kph which is above average from what I have read. I live up in Alberta and alot of trucks have alot more hours than that because of all the idling they do and from short low speed trips from site to site. Mine has 106,000km and I have about 1925 hours.

I am not saying that trucks with alot of hours compared to km are junk but just from my experiences talking to people who have had alot of diesels they say the ones that are more highway driven at higher speeds rather than putted around town have given them less problems.

No problem. Just stuff that I heard but I guess it makes sense. Good luck with the truck. I'm sure you will enjoy it.
