Shouldn't be a problem. Job 1's are at higher risk for torque converter failure and head gasket failure, but if your not stupid with the truck you should be fine.

Nothing with the actual converter. It's TCM related. Probably not so much anymore since Job 1 TCM files have been figured out. I do know that back in the day when I switched from my Job 1 TCM to the Spartan TCM, my converter slip dropped drastically. This was right about the time of the 310 release though. Job 1 tuning have come a long way since then.

As far as transmission tuning goes, yes. Engine tuning is the same for all trucks.

personally speaking. If your running mostly flat roads. just leave the 250 in. I tow My enclosed through some fairly good hills. Combined weight right at 20k. I run the 250 most of the time. Going to try the 275 next run out.

To answer your question. Yes, you can switch right before you leave, but the shifting will be a little firm for a while.
