HD300 tune

First off, I have a 2009 crew cab that is deleted with 5" and the xrt pro race tuner with factory 20" rims and tires and stock height. Ive been running on the 250 tune, but how are people liking the HD300 tune? Anyone getting better mpg's? Is it pretty hard on the motor/tranny? My driving style is pretty mild most of the time, but I give her the coals every now and then. I know head gaskets can be a problem (from what I've read) but I'm finding out that it is a hit or miss issue as far as head gaskets go. Any input is helpful. Thanks!

i have a mini maxx so i can switch tunes on fly. usually during highway i turn it up to hd300 hot because with a light foot it should get you better fuel mileage. and every once in a while when i get a wild hair I will turn it up and let her eat but for the most time i turn the mini maxx all the way down and just cruise around. just gotta know that the more power creates greater risk so if you want to play with more power, get ready because it may have you pay to play.

Yup head gaskets are hit and miss I blew mine driving very mild on a very small tune. I do have a 01/07 build and was told the gaskets had a flaw then. I usually run the 225 street and in the winter I run the no power. Your right foot has a lot to do with it. Sorry to jack the post but I always here ppl say the HD is harder on your motor. I'm assuming their only talking about the 300 tune right? Running the 225 HD is easier then say the 250 non HD right

Oh no worries, I would like to know the same thing. Ya like I said, I'm easy on the pedal, but I'll have a few moments where I get after it. I know the tranny would hold, I'm just wondering if I should just bite the bullet and stud the heads.

Personally I think studding it before they go is a waste of time unless you have a bunch of money to throw around. That was my plan to stud them if they go and they did. Who knows yours might never go Keep the money in your bank

I've had my H&S Mini max on mine for over 3 yrs I keep mine on the HD300. I don't drive it very hard and I have the boost limit set at 41 and the Cold coolant set at 120 and I just don't pay a whole lot of attention to it. If you drive it hard you can break it stock so if you use your head and the safety limits on the H&S you should be alright.

I'd say the 250 is easier than the 225 due to timing
