sct livewire,batteries

I have a2005 powerstroke with banks monster exhaust,sct livewire on performance running amsoil 5w30 synthetic noticed truck turning over slower so I put back to stock so I could bring to sears for new diehards.When I did this I could not believe how much quieter motor was on stock!Why is this is running motor on performance putting on this much strain and hurting it?I don't beat on truck but sure do like that power when you want it.Have had no problems with truck love it previous owner had starter,cable and 1 battery replaced under warranty I bought truck with18,900miles and did mods now have 24,000 on it and runs and pulls my 12,000lb boat with no problems!

first always replace batteries in sets. sound of the motor depends on the tune. the injection timing and alot of other parameters are changed when tuning a vehicle and this is why it's a different sound. think of it as having a cam in a gas motor (not exactly but different cams make different noise running)

6.0's don't come from the factory with studs.

But if you have a high boost level for an extended amount of time you stock torque to yeld bolts tend to let the heads lift just enough to blow the head gaskets.

That's why you watch your quages.

I run Innovative extreme street tune all day every day for a year and my heads are still attached.

I am to the opinion that high egts cause more damage but I would be cautious of high boost levels

The high egt's do more harm to the turbo as well as help burn the gaskets and the egr cooler.

What do you consider log boost times?10 seconds or less.Towing on tow tune on thruway I put on cruise 70 mph and go see boost up to 15 to 20 truck just goes!
