Custom tunes + ficm tuning

Truck in sig, plus new factory flow injectors! I am really wanting to run ficm tuning because of the reviews I've read will give me what I'm looking for. I'm just wondering if I buy php gryphon module, does it provide safe power for an unstudded truck if I don't put it on the Hercules 100 hp setting and just keep it on the atlas 40 or 80? I'm currently running Vivian's looney but am thinking about venturing to see what the srl is all about an run that an the php tune in conjunction with it. Then do the same for the looney to see which combo I like better. All I'm asking is if these ficm tunes are safe to run say if I know I'm going to be running with my buddies DMax one night and don't want to let him by.
Thanks for any Info in advance!

What is high, but acceptable for a few seconds like if your making a pass. And what is just down right to high. I have my alarm set to sound at 1550 on my insight. Is that ok?

Also my other question is with ficm tuning and my looney or (srl to come) what kind of general numbers can I expect as far as power wise, and will this land me in the 13's at the track?

Should put you at about 430-450 if fuel pressure keeps up
