Injector Problems/Tuners

Is it true that I will start running into injector problems amoung other issues if I decide to run a H&S tuner on my 06' 6.0L? FYI- I'm also running 4" turbo-back exhaust, S&B Intake, EGR delete and new oil cooler (being done now). Mechanic is very opposed to any tuners, should I stop there or move forward with the tuner?

H&S doesn't have much of a foothold in the 6.0 market. If I was you I would consider an SCT X3 and take your pick of Tuners. Gearhead, IDP, TSC, Quicktricks are all popular and can supply you with good safe tunes. Sounds to me like you might want to look for a new mechanic too.

SCT over H&S. Costs less and will perform better. Tuning WILL NOT cause your injectors to wear out prematurely. Your mechanic has ZERO substantiating evidence to support any of these claims. I'm with Mitch, find a new mechanic. JMOs
