300,000km on motor and want to install bully dog triple gt. Too many kms on motor?

Hello, I recently purchased a late '99 single cab F-350 dually. It has 180,000 miles on it and was interested in installing a bully dog tuner. Is there too many miles on the motor to install a tuner? I am looking for a little more performance and towing power.

Thank you.

What would you suggest. I have been researching for a little while and found the BD on sale at my local speed shop.

No not at all, as long as the motor and trans was taken care of. But do yourself a favor and get a custom chip from PHP or Gearhead, your trans will thank you later.

+1 Stay away from any tuning you can buy at a local speed shop or walmart.

You need tunes from a company that specializes in your truck.

No Limits, DP, PHP, Gearhead, etc... In no particular order.

I didn't install my Gearhead Tunes until 300K miles, I can tell some OEM parts are tired but I'm replacing them when I can.
