DPF Delete Pipe kit on 08 6.4

I have recently put the DPF delete kit on and it was worth every penny. I have a question that you guys may be able to help me out with. I have the SCT Extreme programer with the performance tune hooked up right now. I like the throttle response better than the tow tune, but I want (need) this truck to last for at least 400k. So my question is am I ok running the performance tune or should I go to the tow tune since it has less HP and TQ. Any feedback is appreciated.

You are fine running the performance tunes. The longevity of your truck will be based on how hard you beat on it and how well you maintenance it

Pay the $75 and and get the RCD 450 or 485 tune. Shifts 100 times better the sct extreme and better power. Your tranny will last longer...the sct canned tune is ****.
