Post 6.7 Emissions issues
I am looking into buying a 08 6.7 cummins with 120k miles. Now i have been doing some research and have noticed a lot of people having issues due to the egr and dpf on these trucks. Now here is my question if i were to buy this truck which is currently running fine and delete the egr and dpf and also add a tuner and a straight pipe is it possible that the damage has already been done from running the truck for 120k miles with the egr and dpf or will the delete kit clear the system and be fine.

The soot buildup that has occurred over the last 120k is the only real 'damage' that has been done to the truck. As long as regular oil changes and other maintenance has been done you should be fine. Have a good shop vac ready when you do the EGR delete so you can clean everything up as it will be a mess. While you in there you will want to check/clean the grid heater as well. They are known for getting clogged up on a stock truck as well.
