Stock 6.7

Does anyone still run a stock 6.7? I am not into seeing how fast my truck will run or how much HP it makes. I use it to tow my fast toys. Plus I don't want to void the warranty. If something happens to the engine. I don't want to be the one paying for it.
I want to hear from the stock 6.7 owners. What do you think of your trucks and how they do the job they were built to do. I must admit I did unplug the EGR and gained a 10% increase in fuel economy. But, all I have to do is plug it back in when and if I have to go back to the dealer.
I like my truck. I will probably install a tuner next year after I am satisfied that it is not a lemon. Tows my carhauler with my Rockcrawler on the trailer like I don't even have a load back there.
Let's here from you stockers.

I have been around a lot of 6.7s and I think they are alright, havnt seen any lemons, I know of a couple that have had Turbo Troubles...but a lot of them after a little while have thrown a Juice or a TS MP8 on them to try to bump up MPGs...I was suprised that the SMARTY for the 6.7 is not untaceable like it was on the 5.9s...

Good oil, good filters, and good scheduled maintenance will keep the stock 6.7s running for a long long long time after the "bombed/modified" truck engines have been recycled into new parts.

Just wait until these people try trading IN or selling the emission modified trucks and CAN NOT. That will make them real happy...
