The "mild" 310 would be just fine for a DD tune. The standard or "aggressive", as they now call it now, is VERY touchy on the peddle. If you'r not driving on a smooth road it is almost impossible to keep the truck cruising w/o bumping your foot off the throttle and making the truck jump violently.

Honestly, I would roll the 275 tune as a DD. The more you beat on it with the 310 the sooner the cab will need to come off....lol

I own a high performance automotive shop and a dyno. The numbers in my sig. are accurate. I have also dyno'd most of the higher HP tunes, (Spartan only), as well as when each individual mod went on the truck.

As for the lift thing, I didn't have any issues with vibrations after the lift. My only issue is axle wrap from the torque!....lol I have a set of Farm Boy Stage 2 traction bars on he way to fix that though.

After you install your lift make sure you go back and retorque everything after you put some miles on the truck.

I do know a few guys that like to run the 310hp tune as a DD. One example would be everyone at Spartan! But I will have to be honest with you that I would never recommend running the 310 as a DD. Everyone knows when they call in and talk to us at Spartan, the first thing Donna and I say is if you are going to run the 310 as a DD then we will go ahead and give you the number to Sun Coast! Stick with the 275hp! Trust me a 275hp tune is more then enough to take on a dodge!

Ive been running the 275 tune no tcm now for quite some time and it is the perfect DD (and my truck is a job 1) It's more then powerful enough to step up to the plate against a cummins or duramax... the expressions on their faces are priceless lol
