I would assume he has 99,800 miles unless he has the extended warranty. I would test drive a 6.7 before you do anything. They're awesome in stock form. If you decide you want to keep the 6.4, I'd tune and delete it.

I would trade it in if it been stock for 100k miles and no more warranty. Or buy the extended warranty and keep it stock. I dont see the point in doing dpf/egr delete with that many miles on the motor. but thats me.:beer:

actaully im at 59750. Sticker says 60,000 miles warranty. But as i found out that is the BASE model, which is the 5.4. so i guess i got 40,000 more to go. The 6.7 will be next unless by the time im at 100,000 the 7.3 makes its return

Why would you not tune and delete a 6.4 with 100k? Just wondering because I was thinking of doing mine in a year or two and I'll have 70-80k miles by then on it.

General consensus is that the motor becomes less reliable when it has been through 100,000 miles worth of regenerations. The oil gets diluted with fuel. Therefore you have diluted oil going through the internals of your motor. That's not the most appealing thing. However, plenty of people have tuned at 100,000 miles and had no issues afterward.
