Hello: I just joined the forum today after buying a 2016 Laramie Longhorn this weekend. I’ve had GM diesels in the past and have learned their weaknesses and how to address those problems. What are the top 3 or 4 things that I should do to the 3.0 Eco in order to make it last longer and/or make it more efficient? I don’t mind spending the money if it will (Bulletproof) the engine.
I apologize in advance is this has already be covered.
Thanks

Egr delete seems to be number 1. Tune it. Dpf/scr delete if desired, and dealer told me don’t go over 7k on oil changes. 8k only if you absolutely need to.

It's often been said the worst thing you can do is use it as a grocery getter, regardless how you set it up with tune etc.
So dont baby it trying to get the highest efficiency possible, as it sometimes needs to work!
