What do you normally use the truck for?

If you tow heavy alot I wouldnt go higher than PHP's Atlas 40. Otherwise go Atlas 80. Herc is for studded trucks

Without Studs, I wouldn't push the tuning pass the Atlas 40, with any moderate street tune on the market with the SCT. You will raise cylinder pressures and boost levels to a point of creating a problem with the HG's and stock bolts prematurely, unless you nurse the truck at all times.

If you want to roll the dice, by all means go ahead. Just realize when they do let go, you may be looking at a pair of heads, along with everything else.
