Smile Introduce Myself And SCT 3015R Question

First off, Hello everyone...

This is my first post on this forum as I am now the proud owner of an 08' F250 Lariat CC 4x4. I'm on a mission to learn everything I can about it.

Included with the truck I received the SCT 3015R Tuner that came with it, and I am having quite a time trying to find any real information about it, any reviews, and any posts by folks who have used it before, etc...

This tuner is allowing me to program both the engine and transmission with the pre-programmed tunes (Stock, Street, Tow, Performance, Race), and for the life of my I cannot find anything on this tuner to tell me exactly how safe any of these are for the health of the truck!

The truck was sold to me already tuned to "Street" mode, (Engine and Transmission) and just for a quick drive up the street and back, I decided to change them both to "Performance". All I can say is

Personally I am in love with the way she acts now. The truck is now twice as perky as before.. But is it safe????

I'm already running a DPF Delete, which thanks to the tuner is Regen free, with a CAT/Muffler delete coming this week.

I know this has been a long post but I would absolutely be grateful if anyone out there could shed some light on my questions, or maybe even tell me their experiences with a 3015R if they have any..

Thanks for reading guys, I plan to spend many more years here.

I think the tunes are Stock, 80,120, and 160hp in that order. You should be fine with any of those tune levels. How safe? That is debatable due to so many various factors, but you will find that probably 80% of the guys that frequent here everyday are running 210-310hp tunes from Custom tuners for sct, Spartan, or H&S

Is the truck studded? Do you know what Job it is? Assuming you aren't studded and have at least a Job 2 or newer, you should be fine. I agree with everything WoodBoy said.

Read the sticky CountryAggie made. It gives a lot of good info, especially when you are new to this platform.

The truck engine wise is stock besides an AIRAID air intake. Exhaust wise it's got the DPF deleted and regen turned off with the tuner. A CAT and muffler delete is going to happen within a week or so. I just don't want to damage anything on my new baby, and if pushing things with the tuner is going to run that risk then I will keep it on Street and stay there. My biggest concerns are EGT's and the stock transmission. The transmission shifts nice and crisp on Performance, but I don't want to push it. The coolant temperature also warmed up considerably quicker on Performance, but even then it never reached past halfway on the gauge. I'm still new to the diesel world (owning one that is) and just want to keep things running as they should.

I'll also mention that the truck has 87k miles on it.
