How long before you "Deleted"

Got my Mini Max the other day with download, and Im just wondering how long before you guys did the Delete?

I have a 2012 F350 PS with 2200 miles on her. But the bad thing is, that I have the Extended 100k warranty, it was thrown in for free from the dealer. They had a promotion going on when I bought mine.

I have all the hardware too, EGR delete kit, 4''Flo Pro exhaust. Just dont know if I should do it just yet. I have a buddy that has a 2011 F250 and he deleted his at 3500 miles and gets better MPG and runs his on "Stock Tune". He hasnt had any problems with his.

I also talked to my dealer and was told as long as I dont have any troubles with the turbo, that they would honor the warranty. They are really cool and some of the guys at the dealer have tuned trucks.

So, the question is, how long before you deleted?

I don't know about how fair the condition is for the turbo failure and I don't know how anyone can give a definite answer about it either. They have a relatively high failure rate on stock trucks, but tuning definitely puts more stress on it and must increase the chance of failure. I have written a tune that only makes about 28 pounds of boost compared to 33 on the h&s tune. I'd like to be able to share it for people who don't want to stress their turbo as much, but they would need to purchase an unlock for the MCC tuning for their truck.

2011 F350 4X4 CCSB SRW, King Ranch, 3.55, Mini Maxx, 4 inch exhaust, egr gone, Confederate Diesel turbo kit with a S363 and 0.91 twin scroll turbine housing, and stock air filter.
