I run mine on the performance tune and I have for the past 30K miles. If your turbo is gonna blow up, its gonna blow up regardless of what tune you are running.

You shouldn't have to worry about the tranny on these truck, people have proven that they can handle a lot of power and a lot of abuse. If anything is gonna die it's gonna be your turbo and they blow up regardless if you are tuned or not

Every truck is different. I've got 78k miles and still original turbo. I've seen them blow with 10k miles stock and last over 100k miles on the performance tune. I've also seen trucks run 150k miles or more with original turbos and even seen one with 500k miles original turbo.

Yup, that's why there are so many turbo kits coming out for the 6.7 powerstroke. They're not all just for power but for reliability as well.
