Running H&S in "performance" mode all the time

Does anon have any issues with running the performance H&S tune all the time? I'm not hard on my truck and i pretty much putt around except for an occasional ROMP. Im just wondering is this somehow not good for the motor or is it too much pressure on the truck? opinions please!! this has become one hell of a debate with me and my friends who are all running 6.7s.

My buddy in his cummins runs his on performance and says his gets better mileage that way. I don't run mine on it because I don't like the egts in performance. I been running it on street but ain't had it on but a week. Just ran the first tank I diesel through it since the delete.

Been running highest setting on. My 2011 every day since I had it deleted which has been almost four years+. Your fine, Your mileage is better on higher tunes too. Are you talking about boost pressure?

I run mine on performance everyday and haven't moved it except to the tow setting when towing heavy loads. Otherwise I leave it there.

Sounds like the exact same thing I do. I have always left it on performance unless I hook up to something heavy.

I run it on street just for the fact that I am usually pretty hard on the skinny pedal, I havent deleted yet and my stupid dpf seems to fill up alot faster in performance. As soon as I get that delete pipe in Ill put it on performance and never look back!

Never comes off performance unless towing. No issues.

I hear you on that. On performance I was seeing a regin about once a day, backing it down to street didn't help much either. Thats what finally tipped the scale on the "wait for the warranty" debate. Couldn't stand that stuff sitting in the garage while my engine choked from its own waste.

Now it stays on performance without issue.
