H&S Tunes

I recently purchased a 2014 Platinum and came over from a 2011 Dodge 6.7 Cummins- with that being said I am real familiar with H&S tuning on a Cummins and not so much with the Ford. I was wondering if guys are experiencing any issues with tuning the 6.7 like the Cummins guys are / were having- for example they are blowing head gaskets left and right because the mapping in the tunes alters the injector timing and the VGT turbo design created drive pressures that was lifting heads. Guys have played with the MCC and created some tunes that correct the timing issues from the standard box tunes and either swapped turbos or added a waste gate. Driving habits played a role as well with those issues, but basically what was thought to be a safe stock tune with the DPF removed actually wasn't a fail safe tune to run due to the timing maps. I'm no Einstein when it comes to writing tunes so that's why I'm asking if anyone has had any issues being tuned and deleted- head gaskets ect. I have tried to search and can't really find anything regarding the timing issue so I kinda think that I can forget about that issue with the ford, or so I hope. What would you guys recommend doing to the 6.7 other than say just deleting it and tuning it? Head studs are always cheap insurance considering the alternative- what are the weak points of the ford 6.7 drivetrain? Just want to educate myself before I take the plunge, any insight would be appreciated.

don't worry about the studs

the 4th gen Cummins are the only trucks out there constantly blowing HG's with mini maxxes. not so bad on the XRT PRO where you can set your power level and leave it.

there's nothing weak in the drivetrain. welcome to owning a truck with a real transmission!

I came over from dodge as well i had a fully deleted 12 with H&S Overdrive and honestly they make trans tunes better than overdrive could ever be. Youll be extremly happy with the truck the only think i miss is the sound of those unmistakable 6 cyl other than that dont miss a thing
