Super chips on performance tune?

I now have the cat off and EGR spool in. I have a super chips tunner and wondering if the performance tune is a problem with stock gasket's and stock head bolt's? Super chips says not any more of a problem than stock and a couple others said the same, any thoughts because I would like to keep this tune in as I am told I will get the best milage with it and it is more fun.

Also I have an insufficient EGR recirculation code and an insufficient exhaust back pressure code. So far it is running great with no dash light's but the code's are coming up on the tunner when I check code's. The truck is an 04 and I have the EGR valve plugged in setting on top of the motor. Will this be a problem long term? Thanks!

The EGR codes will keep showing up until you get a tuner like a SCT that can custom tune and disable it in the ECM. IMHO it shouldn't be a problem to run the Superchip on performance with stock head bolts. I ran one for a while before I got my SCT with no issues.

Did the codes cause any issue's or just that they were there?

No they caused no issues at all. And the check engine light wasn't on so it didn't bother me.

I also have a Super chips on my '04 and it is set to performance mode. I welded my EGR cooler shut so the code for EGR flow was already present on my Edge Insight CS. It doesn't show up on my dash so I don't personally worry about it.

I just know the truck runs way better and does get better fuel economy in performance mode. From what I have been told, my head gaskets will be fine (after my EGR solution) unless I dog it way out or have the wonderful oil cooler failure. Both of which are possible regardless of the super chips.
