Stuff in transmission fluid

My brother has a 08 6.4l with 30000miles with h&s programmer. He checked his fluid and it has what I think is fibers in it. Fluid is clean bit has these specs in it. Wondering if he could smoke a transmission with just that tuner? What is his transmission rated for HP wise?

After 300k ,even without a tuner you could smoke a transmission. The 6.4L trans has a really good reputation for holding a lot of power and taking abuse, but after 300k ,(probably with a lot of towing I would guess) even these transmissions can let go (especially if maintenance was late/missed).

He said 30k, not 300k.

Are they small gritty particles? This is usually due to rust in the dip stick tube it seems on these trucks.

He finally had the fluid flushed and checked out by a Ford dealer. They said it was from the dip stick tube. Nothing to be worried about

I had the same thing happen, pull the dipstick and there were flakes/filings on it, I was quite scared, phoned ford they said it was normal, I booked it in for a tranny flush any ways and told the service manager to make sure the tube got cleaned out and it's been good ever since.
