the first thing i would do is get a set of gauges this will help in knowing when to get out of the skinny pedal. i ran my x street for almost a year until i started to get puking then it was time for the HG'S AND STUDS. there is no real answer here as all of these trucks are diffrent ive seen some that run tunes and never have problems and then ive sen alot of stock trucks that have hg's problems.

Get ahold of your tune writer and find out why the lower hp tunes aren't working. I would shoot for 1200*F max on EGTs and 200*F max on tranny...these are still slightly conservative, but safe.

1350 is the generally accepted EGT you want to stay below but exceeding that for a short time shouldn't be a major problem.

As far as what is safe for your heads/gaskets there is no way to tell. You have an 07 so it has all of the developmental improvements to the 6.0. I ran Xtreme street, or Looney or equivalent for 2 years before I had studs done. My head gaskets were on borrowed time when changed. I really wouldn't want to drive my truck with a stock tune all the time.
