Is DP 80e tune that bad?

I had a member here claim that the dp 80e tune has been known to split rods and crack blocks because if to much timing. What are your guys thoughts. I have been running it for 6 months and have loved the way it performs.

Ok thanks for the reply. I guess it sometimes is a matter of opinion. I think I will contact DP.

"Dangerous Topic"? I'm not sure I've ever been aware of any "Dangerous Topics" here

You feel there are things here we're not supposed to talk about? Dangerous to WHOM? Certainly Not the one posting the Question - right?

There are clearly Rules of Conduct that we're supposed to follow (name calling and the like) but, What in the World are you talking about?

Feel free to PM me. I do not wish to talk about it openly.

I don't see any problems with it after a lot of research I have had mine for two years with no problems and haven't rode in another tuned 7.3 that I think runs better than mine with all dp tunes.
