You can have the best gaskets in the world, but they don't mean chit if the heads were warped or cracked. Did you have the heads sent out to be checked by a machine shop?? The other concern is fuel pressure, the Livewire don't monitor FP. If FP drops below 45psi from idle to WOT, then you take a chance of destroying injectors.

As long as the heads were good when reinstalled, and you have a way to monitor FP and EGT, you should be good to go with the high tunes.
