Is this really safe for my engine?

I just studded, deleted, 4" turbo back no cat exhausted, sinister coolant filtered, new oil coolered, new water pumped and livewired with egt sensored my 2004 f350 automatic4x4 crew cab lariat. The livewire installer tuned the truck to the highest setting an all I can say is wow!!! Is this really safe for my engine and transmission or am i going to spit hot metal chicklets out the exhaust? I do not have a heavy foot and drive with discression, but with this much power I dont see me keeping my foot out of it all the time. Are you guys really running this much power without problems?

Actually, I am running a fair amount more power (turbo and injectors) without any other reliability mods than that. It is completely safe. The bottom end of these trucks can handle somewhere around 800hp without upgrades, and there are guys over 1000 hp with ARP studs and OEM gaskets! So, you have nothing to worry about.

If you think it's fast now, get some custom tunes and you will nevergo back. In fact, those are better for the truck than the canned tunes you are running now

^^^YUp, that's why you need custom tunes. It's way better for the tranny...

Then, lay off the burnouts

It's fine unloaded, but if you're towing heavy get a tow tune or return it to the stock power level.
