Can a 2011 6.7 powerstroke turbo handle the extra power from a delete? I’m thinking about deleting my truck but I’m not to sure if the turbo will hold up.

Thanks

Depends on how much extra power which is determined by the tuning. Deleting doesn't add a significant amount power, you can delete it and run a stock power tune if you want too.

I have been for a few years. Pretty mild hp tune and fully deleted.
135k miles and turbo went out yesterday.

Over-spoolling is the killer for the ceramic bearings. IMO, anything over 20psi will shorten the original turbo life.

What they said. Tune will matter I'm running a tow tune from tyrant and don't see boost over 18 but I don't floor it either
I have 50k on my delete and as far as I know it's stock turbo at 175k miles my 11

Full delete & stock tune on my ‘11. @ 145k miles. 7.5k miles later so far so good no issues.

I bought a weirdly nice stock with 245k and deleted it with h&s tow tune and drove it to 280k without a problem, my wife and baby drove it at the end.

My 2012 had a weight reduction at 130,000 and the turbo said no more at about 180,000. Mainly ran a tow tune which I believe is around 40 hp over and changed my oil every 5,000 miles.
Definitely makes a difference in the lifetime after adding power to it. However, once the weight is reduced, it's a lot easier to change the turbo IMHO.
