Arrow question.

ok folks i just did the 10k mod and i absloutley love it i bought a few different resistors as of right now i have the 5k resistor in it and i love it great power awesome sound good throtle response so what im curious about is does this mod affect the reliability of my truck? with the 5k in it, it sounds like a muscle car with a good cam loopy idle but runs better than ever. i travel a lot longg distance and cant afford to sacrafice realibilty for power. and dont wanna loose all fuel economy, all im asking is should i A. not even worry about it. B. remove the 5k and install the 10k again. C. totally remove the resistor? i really do love this mod hope i can keep it w/o the sacrafice of relability.

i have some on a switch they're fun but get some custom tunes, those resistors will destroy your fuel economy.
