Thanks for your replies.
Do yourself a favor and send the Hypertech back and get an SCT with custom tunes. Also, you need to get a good set of gauges to monitor EGT, trans. temp., and boost. It depends a lot on how you drive it and what you use it for as far as the head gasket and EGR cooler issues. If at all possible, I would do a complete EGR delete as well.
