Too much power

I was wondering of the 100 hp setting on my edge evo is too much for my truck to handle it has 202,000 miles on it? Could someone help me out here?

I wouldn't think so, but maybe a tech will be around to help. You should be fine though...

I think that is really entirely up to you and how you drive your truck! Get yourself some gauges if you dont have them yet! That is a good way to get yourself into trouble without them and a tuned up truck

I've got 182,000 ish on mine and I run it on my 140 setting. Hasn't given me any problems and I drive it hard. Hope this helps.

I would think that working the engine harder with a 100+ hp tuning gain must have some affect on the lifespan of the engine no matter what the mileage.

i run my evo on 100hp setting most of the time and i have the attitude set on level five to mess with mustangs. my truck's got 160,000 on the clock and the tranny hasn't been rebuilt yet. (now i just put my foot in my mouth) but it shifts real good. the only thing i have a problem with is keepin the tires hooked up!!
