    I would find a wrecked truck on copart and use that engine. Its a roll of the dice. Otherwise buy a new truck with that money.

    What makes you think the delete caused engine failure?

    Dd15 is known as oil pump orings failure causing to low oil pressure which cause engine damage.

    Sounds like somebody learned a lesson.
    If the previous owner sold it to you without notice, he can be held liable for it.

    One of our guys deleted his DD16. Worked okay for about a year, then it cracked a liner. $38,000 later, just for the engine, he is so scared of it blowing up again that he has it up for sale.

    I'm assuming, but quite likely it's not not the DPF delete that hurts the engine. More likely the EGR got shut down as well.
    EGR reduces the temperature during the combustion process. If EGR is deleted and the fuel management in the ECM is stI'll the same, you're asking for an internal meltdown.
