well thats a double edged sward. depends how you drive it. drive it like you stole it on a daily basis then yes you will probably break something. drive it normal and stomping on it once in a while your fine. now racing a hemi you will be fine.

there is lot of people running kem's 345 tune and their fine. now i know someone who destroyed their trans mudding with the 345 tune. but again it depends how you drive

have fun

Anyone can hurt their tranny or blow head gaskets with this tune. However, as long as your not stupid with your truck you will be fine.

Like was said its fine if you dont drive it like a rental. But of course more power will cause a tranny to become weak faster than if you ran it stock or in a lower tune. So I say go for it!
