If your worried about it, the 210 or 250 tune will be perfectly fine. For what it's worth, I have an early build date 08 as well and drove the 275 tune for my daily driver most of the time. Never had a single problem out of that tune.

Put the 310 or the 345/350 in it, and hope for the best. If something breaks, you'll know.

If you are worried, bump it down to the 210. Alot of people run the 210 as a DD.

I run the 250 as my DD tune. It really doesnt smoke all that much unless you really get in it at a light.

The 275 tune has early lock-up at 45 mph whereas the 250 tune does not. Both shift firmly, just different shift patterns.
