The good old "not IF but WHEN" remark is often delivered without real data behind ut.
You could make that statement about every single part that makes up the truck. The evaluation should really be not if but HOW LONG before a replacement is required.
Do I replace my tires right now because they will EVENTUALLY fail?
How about my lights, or my coolant, or maybe just the whole engine, because yes, it will eventually fail (although probably not for many many miles).
Just because a part may eventually wear out does not mean you should start eliminating those parts from your truck, especially if it is keeping nasty **** out of the air we breath. And yeah, it's likely that if you are operating the vehicle and its components outside their original design parameters you are more likely to have premature part failures.
I'm all for better performance and more power but not at the cost of your, my child's or my health.
