Maintenance costs don't scare me like "fixing it" cost. $500-$1000 for an injector, melted pistons, blown head gaskets. You can get those problems with anything but they seem more prevalent with diesels these days. Maybe it's from running hot tuners, or tons of work I just know I a few guys with a 6.uh-oh that have spent close to 10k to get their trucks straight.
Problems like that are all preventable. People who have those problems doing know what they're doing when they're modding stuff. You can't shove a tuner running a high performance tune and drive it with a heavy foot without doing some other small mods to help the engine. There's an order to do things that lots of guys learn the hard way. If you read up on forums and other posts you'll learn a lot about how to prevent those problems. But if you keep it relatively stock you won't have those problems anyway.
