looking for a new truck

i want a 6.4l but still have a few questions about them. who is making the most power and how much are they making? that one is just for fun. as soon as i get it i want to get a dpf delete but don't want the 250hp tunes i want to keep the truck for a long time and a extream tune would take that away. i would be happy with 350-400rwhp. dose any company offer lower hp tunes? any onther info haveing to deal with the new truck would be helpful.

03 super cab, 6.0l, short bed, 4x4, muffler and cat delete, 285/75R16 dunlop rover m/t, SCT x3 tuned by kem performance, auto meter gauges, cfm intake manifold.

I don't think even the 250 tune is going to shorten the life of your engine drastically. Making power doesn't hurt these engines, its revving the piss out of them.

If you don't use it, or abuse it, you don't lose it. An old saying I heard long ago. You put a 500 hp tuner on, if you don't abuse it your engine will last as long as a stocker, maybe longer due to better tuning.
