Who runs a stock clutch with a TS chip?

Just curious how long your stock clutch held up with a TS chip installed?

Mods would be 6637 filter, exhaust, and standard TS chip on a 2003 7.3L, 2wd ZF6, stock injectors. I tow 10k-17K from time to time. The truck will have gauges as well.

1999.5 F350 DRW, CC, LB, A/T, 7.3L. Bank Exhaust brake, 4" Exhaust, BD power Thruster II turbo, PHP Hydra

They usually hold up just fine.
all depending on driving style and clutch habits. Along with the possibility of fuel and oil leaks

I run my stock auto with a TS 6, c.i.a, gauges, custom exhaust, water/method,ww2. No issues yet, but I only run in 50hp setting daily. Sometimes I get speedy Gonzales and do 100hp for a light to light, but never more, I did the 140hp but black smokes and is sluggish compared to the 100hp. Think I'm in need of Injectors,Hpop, fuel pump mod

DPTuner on 01 F250, and the stock clutch wouldnt hold it. Even the cruise control would over-rev the motor on a hill. I had to upgrade the clutch. I paid someone to do the clutch swap because I dont have anything strong enough to deal with the heavy tranny/transfer, and the shop which did the new clutch (South Bend) said the stock clutch was not worn or damaged in any way, it looked fine, no oil etc. It just didnt have sufficient clamping force to hold the additional torque.
