Deletes/mods or buy extended warranty?

Have an 11 4x4 ccsb with just over 87k, build date 10/29/10. Have not had a single problem....yet. With the powertrain warranty almost gone I went ahead and ordered a tuner, intake, deletes, and exhaust. I did this believing it would add longevity to the motor. Also having regens every 75 miles or so.

After hours of searching and reading on here I've ran across problems with these trucks I wasn't really aware of. Turbo failures, I was already aware of. Head and valve problems are what I'm more concerned with. Spending $3-4k replacing a turbo would be a tough pill to swallow but its doable. Replacing a 6.7 is not at this time.

So my question, is the damage done? Am I driving a ticking bomb thats not worth deleting? Should I buy another 100k of power train warranty instead?

Guess my last thought is to just drive the piss out of it for the next 13k miles and try to blow it up?

My opinion would be to get the extended warranty and not drive the piss out of it but since you've already dropped the cash on all the delete stuff, you might as well go ahead and delete it now. I'm kind of interested to see how many miles one of these motors are good for.

I just replaced the motor and turbo in my truck 2012 F-250 6.7 total cost was 11,201$ the turbo was only $1400 of that. I broke the crank in mine at 43,000 and it was completely stock. I am going to delete as soon as my new warranty goes out. Just thought I would give you a ball park price on what it cost.

Was that at the dealership? Was it under warranty? Do you know why did the crank break?

Can't understand why that wouldn't be under warranty with those miles unless they voided it. But that is the stuff I'm worried about. Wish I could find a mod friendly dealership.

The front main seal fell out?
I do believe the seals should not fall out of the motor allowing the crank to flop around! That would almost always cause an issue!

I just plan on keeping things stock. First reason is I'm sure there will be more crack downs on emissions with diesel engines and I don't want to spend money on all the parts needed just to have to put them back on down the road. Secound it seems a lot of problems develop after deleted. Ive even read on different forums that sometimes people think this engines just don't like the modifications.
There is a YouTube video out there of a 6.7 with already 500k on it and the only thing that was replaced was the radiator. Bone stock..

I don't see why you'd need to delete all kinds of stuff on a 60K$ truck, it should get 500k miles on it easily stock, or I'd hope so!
If I can only expect to get 100k or less, I need to buy a 6k$ car!
