Type of tuner and blown head gaskets..

How many have blown head gaskets, and for example, how many were running a Banks tuner when they blew?
Their tunes seem to be a bit on the aggressive side and they advertise how their systems have emergency fueling shut-off so they're safer, but that's all set by the individual isnt it?

Basically I'd like to get an idea of who was using which tuner when they blew their gaskets.

Thanks

I voted but I know that SCT had nothing to do with my gasket issue. I had sticky turbo vanes which caused an overboost

5 people?
That's it??


Could we possibly get this thread stuck?
I'm very interested to see if there is any correlation between certain tuners and blown gaskets.

Thanks

Your poll is already skewed. Two of the three votes for the Predator are the same truck.

I guess I should say that my vote for the Diablo was due to the fact that Im on 40's and I was towing. I guess you cant do both
