Can anyone recommend high hour parts that you would replace or check on a E175DPXSUF with over 1000 hours ?

Well I will replace if you have not done it already, sparkplugs, Water pump while you are there check the exhaust lower inner and the two seals, honestly I don't go around replacing parts unless it shows  signs of ware and tare or appears that is about to fail, I have heard of engines with well double the hours you have and still running strong, give it a good in-depth check, 

Cheers

Good advice,
Yes I have already done a full 300 hour service. I was just curious if anyone was aware of an "Achilles heel" per say. I certainly dont want to be a part changer. I have read a couple comments about high hour fuel pumps causing major issues.

Did you clean and inspect the VST filter, exhaust pressure nipple and the restrictor orifice?

Vst filter is the little one you pull with a screw ? If so yes and I did do the exhaust nipple. I had to replace it. The one that was in there the entire end was burned off and sealed. Now the last one you mentioned I dont know about ?

If you inspect the exhaust hose near the point it attaches to the EMM you'll notice a hard spot in it.  That's a metal restrictor.  You can remove it and clean the tiny hole as that's usually what plugs up and causes popping/rough running at speed as well as poor idle quality.
