I know for a fact that my truck has to work less to pull my TT than it did in stock formation. Internet myth gets started when some idiot adds 100hp to a powertrain that was not designed to handle it and when he has a failure he blames the chip or.................? That is why you need to do the supporting mods ahead of time. If the truck works less this has to lead to longer component life. Take the trans, the 4R100 was used and programed for very, very long and drawn out shifts. Install a tuned VB and the shifts are fast and solid. The clutch packs not making contact as long does two things, cut's down on friction, which reduces heat in itself, as well as it extends the life of such components. The 7.3 was detuned because of the weak 4R100, so there is a lot of power that can be brought out fairly cheap. Just make sure to perform the proper supporting mods. Use a good tow tune and you will not have any issues. In my opinion nobody makes a better tow tune than DP. I love towing with my truck, it is a totally different rig when running the tow tune from Jody.
