Buying a Used Higher Mile 6.7
Here in the next couple of years I hopefully will be retiring my noble steed of a 6.0 and either buying another 6.0 fully bulletproofed or going for a higher mile 6.7 MY 2012-2016 (between 100k and 200k) that is stock and eventually doing the deletes myself so I will know how hard the truck was tuned, etc. The thing that worries me is the turbos and the HPFP and exactly how reliable they are? And signs of impending failure where you want to fix immediately before it takes out entire engine.
I keep my 6.0 maintained pretty religiously and have had little to no trouble with that truck with the exception of rough running on low fuel and a few leaks here and there. Partially was lucky due to the previous owner keeping it maintained and the fact I use Archoil in fuel and oil probably helps it.
Do fuel pumps and turbos fail on those trucks just because they feel like it, that is how I interpreted Bill Hewitt's videos and the fact I know someone who has a 2012 have their pump go bad which ended up killing the entire engine in a matter of about 30 seconds, cost him $20k for new long block/labor at dealership. Not something I will be looking to do at all if I own a 6.7.
Any advice would be appreciated!
Thank you and god bless!
