For me, my current thoughts are to go to a higher quality injector, hopefully a second turbo, and ideally get the v2 tuning to dial it in best I can.

seems like you're on the right track. Honestly (purely assumption) the only thing thing I see possibly having a shortened life would be the injectors... And to me on these trucks you spend $600(+/-) on good injectors that should last a couple hundred thousand miles as can be changed in 2hr with basic hand tools.. Even if life was shortened 25%,that isn't an end all imo. So far our results have been positive and like you I'm excited to see what we come up with. Honestly if it doesn't gain much, then at least this question can be paid to rest with actual real world results!

I believe the reason for this thread was to get peoples thoughts, ideas, criticisms and providing data to all. I think that we all appreciate your ideas and your criticism. It helps us to look and think about things that maybe we hadn't or to test and try things that would help prove or disprove benefits. It just seems that every few comments you just repeat the same old "it's a waste of time" comments.. If it turns out we prove it not beneficial it's no sweat off my back, and I'm guessing the others doing it won't mind either. It is an experiment. Simply trying to make a good thing better.. Not a big deal either way. Again thanks for your thoughts..

at 330 bar I don't see issues with lifespan, it's 3 bar over what bosch says it ok. Doesn't worry me. I see no reason to say the vp is being hurt, the seat of the injector it is reasonable to say lifespan will be shortened. Considering stockers often last ~200,000 miles I would say even if lifespan is reduced by %50 it is still reliable. Nozle quality comes into question here, but we are stuck arguing something that is beyond what most can test for.

To date I have not had any observable ( keyword) downfall to the 330 bar. Improvements appear to be up for debate and I already posted the logs so I wont beat a dead horse.
