Cortex superchip and head studs?

05, 240k miles, egr delete. Just got it, its a mud truck on 5 Tom military axles and 63 inch tractor tires. Just had a nlown head gasket, got that fixed and had apr head studs put in. I've had people tell me that with the studs it will handle the highest setting of the on programmer fine. Is that true?

Also, the settings are stock, light tow, heavy tow, and performance. Which has more added HP, low or heavy tow?

Yes it will now handle the highest setting. If you really want power then sell the Superchip and get a SCT with custom tunes. You will be amazed how much more power it makes than the Superchip. Also, post a picture of this beast!!

Thanks. Everything from the frame up is stock, so when I have questions I come to y'all because the truck still thinks its driving on the highway.

Yeah that's right after it got finished. It hasn't been near that clean since then.

On the cortex, which has more added horsepower, light tow or heavy tow?
