Troverman, that is one great explanation of the whole delete issue. The best I've seen on here since the 08s came out.

Please let me add two things: 1, when you do the delete you have cancelled any warranty you might have left. Some say they can return the truck to stock and get warranty work done. That is a lot of work and what is that word, oh yeah fraud. 2. It was a different truck but I deleted my 08 and managed to blow a head gasket. Cost me 5300 buckeroos. Full disclosure: the repairs included some head studs and an egr block, but was mostly for the HG replacement. I blew the gasket towing in a tune above stock which was due to a brain fart, I knew better. My 6.7 is stock so I'm not keeping up and don't know if anyone is blowing HGs or not.

I have decided to trade in my dodge for this 2012 F250. This pickup has no warranty left so nothing to worry about there. Will be getting it in the next week.

Thanks again to all of you who have helped me understand the new motors. I really appreciate it.

Head gaskets are not an issue deleted on a 6.7. 2 more studs per cylinder than the previous international motors I believe. At Least I haven't heard of anyone blowing them.

Thanks! On the warranty, they can't kill it on everything...just basically the engine, transmission, transfer case, axles, driveshafts, etc. But the body, interior, suspension, etc would still have to be covered if in warranty. But it is a good point, and something to think about.

You will love it deleted. Despite what they say ... it is a huge difference.
Dyno stock:
330 hp / 670 tq
Dyno deleted (on H&S early tunes):
495 hp / 1040 tq
All at the rear wheels of course

My early build 2011 has been deleted since Dec 2010.
140,000 miles (all but 4,000 deleted).

You should not have to worry about head gaskets.
You will have to worry about your turbo ... depending on what tunes you are running. My first turbo went about 60,000 miles but was running tunes that pushed boost up to 38 PSI. My second turbo (2013?) has run since but on some different tunes that max out at about 30 PSI (but with much higher EGT's).

If you are going to push it hard I would look into the 2015 turbo upgrade. There is info on here if you search for it.

Good luck!

200K+ club

This thread is very interesting.

Just curious if there is anyone that has exceeded 200K miles with their 6.7L and has any comments?

You need to join the 6.7 powerstroke facebook page. There is a bunch of guys over 200k miles, several over 400k miles and most of them are stock.

I'll join the 200,000 mile club in late summer. Will be at 185,000 next week. I'm jumping back in here since deletes came up. I deleted at 138,000. I got nervous due to the frequency of regens and was out of warranty so I thought what the heck. Previous replies have been very good on delete and the EGRs are much better on the 6.7 than the 6.4. With that being said my EGR was in pretty bad shape when I took it off (see Pic). Could not be happier with the deletes. A lot more power and the MGP gains were tremendous.

Well I've been reading this thread quite a bit for the last two weeks or so as I've been contemplating the purchase of a 225K mile 6.7. Well after selling my 2003 LB7 with 180K on it on Firday night I flew to Arkansas to pick up this bad boy and drove it approximately 11 hours to chicago. It needs a little love and some general TLC but wow are these things amazing when deleted and I've got to say it drives extremely well for a 200,000 mile truck. I am a mechanic and very **** about how stuff drives but I think this thing is tighter than my boss's 2011 Lariat.

My truck is at 139k right now, only had to replace the rad and thankfully no turbos because its a 2013 not 11-12. Its stock and am really thinking about deleting it before 150,000 kilometres.
