Yeah, so I recently got ahold of a Superchips tuner for a good deal and will be running it my truck until my warranty is up, as I would imagine the Superchips is a relatively "conservative" piece of tuning equipment, and I'm waiting till I have more green for an SCT, headstuds, TQ convertor and such. The unit has a 59/92, 97/145, and 105/160 HP/TQ setting. My truck's an '06 (built Nov. '05), so the bugs oughta be out of it and it hasn't had any problems so far, knock on wood. I know once you start tuning things you can't complain or whine about damage, and that more power means more wear, whining is not my goal. So, maybe the techs or guys who are ultra-familiar with these rigs can chime in: how safe is it to run the truck on the upper levels on a regular basis? Is it wise to only program the performance levels once in a while? I mean I'm not gonna always put the hammer down...I can't afford to blow too much $$$ on diesel every week. I don't do much towing, so can I program it to the highest setting and just cruise on that without any major worries? On the max setting it'll be getting under 400 hp...this should be low enough to not require studs, tranny mods or stuff like that...I just wanna have a little fun now and then as a daily driver, to remind me of when I had my Corvette. Opinions, ideas?
