I can't say anything about Vivian's since I have never ran the tunes. I have been running Matt's SRL for awhile now and I don't baby the truck. I still have stock head bolts and have not blown the gaskets. I have made many passes down the track with it as well and everything is still good to go.

HG's can blow with any tune id imagine. But I have vivians looney my truck seems to mesh good with it. I use it as a DD. No smoke unless pedal to the metal. Still would like to try matts.

You can pop head gaskets stock. Both tunes are reliable good custom tunes.
Keep your truck healthy and have gauges.

It doesn't matter. If any of these tuners were writing tunes that blew headgaskets, they wouldn't be in business for very long. If the engine is healthy, no custom tunes for a nonstudded truck will blow headgaskets.

I blew my HG's while stock. It was only after I got my truck studded that I ran tunes. Since then, I have run 5 different tuners and it's all personal preference.
