275 DD

about two months ago I bought a new 2010 6.4L and well after doing some reading around here I found spartan was the tuner to go with. I curently am running
- spartan 250 tune
- MBRP 4" cat back stainless
- Volant Intake
I did install some gauges
- Boost
- pryo / EGT
- fuel pressure

I only have about 2800 miles on the truck right now and I have been running the 250 tune as a daily driver for the last week. Do I need to do anything else to the truck to run a 275 as a DD safe!?

Hell, I daily drive the 275 and haul a 36' triple slide 5th wheel with a 21' wakeboard boat hitched to the back of the trailer. Just keep an eye on your gauges and drive sensible and you will be ok.

You might have a flow problem with the Volant. I had it and with the 310 it would pull in the flow minder a lot. Put in a AFE and now more problems. The 275 might be ok.

You shouldn't have head gasket issues with the 2010 model truck. It should have the latest head gasket design.
