You are just broken in.The keys to taken care of any vehicle is do maintenance as manufactures recommendations with the best products you can find.You found the best
place to start this forum is a great place for answers.It ranges from the young guys who
put most all there cash in their truck and save a bit for a women to the married guy
who has to wait to trick his truck out a bit because he has responsibilities.

I have 126k on mine, runs like a champ. My friend Nick (GM Duraturd on here) has over 275k on his and he just bought stage 1 injectors. They run a long time.
