Tuner vs. Stock Clutch

She Who Must Be Obayed told me this morning to go ahead and order a DP Tuner for my red truck... E-'99 F250 w/ 6sp man trans, about 196k miles, and what I assume is the stock clutch...

How long do y'all think the clutch is gonna last with it getting a 80 hp econo tune? Probly get a 40 or 60 hp towing tune as well, but the cluch is a concern across the board... any thoughts?

I had a 60 horse tune on a stock clutch and it coughed up a spring after a month!

Yeah, she's great... she spent the day shoppin with her mom on Sunday, and after she got back, we were talkin' and she said to go ahead and get a tuner for my truck.... was nice, said I haden't gotten anything for me for almost a year, so go ahead... Makes me wonder how much she spent while out shopping! All kidding aside, yeah, I'm lucky, she's great...

So, after I pull the PCM and get the code off it, I'll order a tuner... got some gauges already, sitting in the boxes, so they gotta go in first. Gonna keep my fingers crossed about the clutch, I have no idea if it's original or not. Sure that it's not been replaced since my buddy got the truck at 170K.
