Hey guys, I've been scouring this forum for quite some time now. Finally decided to join up, and I have a few questions to ask that hopefully you guys can shed some light on. I have been thinking of purchasing a colorado/canyon duramax for a while and have been teetering on the edge. I will be buying used probably with a fair amount of miles. One reason for that is I want to delete immediately, and most of the higher mileage trucks have run out of their warranties anyways so no worry there about warranty voiding. I know its become increasingly hard recently to delete diesels, and do you think its still possible? In my state there are no emissions inspections and tons of people are riding around with deleted trucks so maybe there's some hope. I'm sure I could find a shop in the area willing (crossing my fingers). Another thing, obviously there is a fair share of people who have had problems with these trucks on the forums. It seems that nearly EVERY single one has something to with the emissions equipment. So my question is, do you think an 100k mile truck thats deleted should have a long life ahead? Or has the emission equipment and mostly the stupid damn EGR already done its damage? Also, where there many improvements in the 2016 vs 2017 model year? Thanks guys!
