Programmers don't blow headgaskets.... They incresea cylinder pressure depending on the tne, sure but from what I've gathered, headgaskets are blown by neglecting your emissions system. Oil cooler clogs, egr is starved and flash boils, coolant into exhaust, too much pressure and heat causes heads to lift = head gasket failure.

Besides, not all tuners adjust the same perameters to increase power levels anyway so comparisons are moot.

clogged oil coolers and ruptured EGRs are what case HG failures, not tuners. That's why so many stock trucks are blowing HG.

Head Gaskets are blown by either overheating or excessive cylinder pressure.
Overheating will burn the sealer on the gaskets and they will eventually fail.
Excessive cylinder pressure Will Lift stock bolts and push through the gaskets.
If the pressure is enough it will push through the sealer even with studs and burn the sealer.
It may not Puke the first time it does but the damage is done.
Anything that will Increase cylinder pressure will increase the chance of Failure.
The 6.0 just Doesn't have enough bolts around the Holes

It's not the chip or the tune.
It's how they effect Cylinder pressure, and that depends on what was modified in the tune.
I Reputable tuner will know the limits of the vehicle they are writing the tune for.
