I've been using the 210, but I don't have a level 3. My truck has lots of engine hours anyway to run higher HP, but I can get 17-20MPG on the highway depending on my ground speed. There is lots of power for my liking, and the tranny is a touch firmer then stock. I love it. Lots of guys are saying the tunes closer to 300hp are making awesome mileage though

The 250 and 275 tunes will net you the best fuel mileage, and should be perfectly safe as long as you drive it like a sane person and keep up with your maintenance.

Not gonna hurt it. My truck was stock until 90,000Mi, and I have 95,000 on it now. It also has the hours listed below... %95 of those hours were before tuning. I bought it from my boss, and it never got shut off in the winter. No problems but Rads

My truck has been on at least a 250hp tune for the last 25k. I really like the 300 for daily driving. 250 has been my tow tune though I was towing locally with the 300 with no issues. trailer was about 12k. If I can get the EGT under control at full throttle. I may not load another tune beside the 300.
