Tuner & Exaust in the near future, just a few ?'s now

Have a 08' 350 CC SB w/ just under 22K. I am going to be doing the H & S Mini Max in the very near future. I am just nervous about the effect that the tune will have on the engine & tranny. Obviously like everyone else I want the truck to perform the best and the way I look at it the improved MPG's are a plus. HaHa So I dont do any pulling or hauling I just want to do the best tune for the 6.4 that wont require me to do headstuds, tranny rebuild, turbo replacement etc. etc. I understand alot comes down to the driving style aswell and obviously if your running a 250HP tune that those things are going to wear down.So, really I am looking everybodys opinion on the best tune.

275 nets me the best mileage. It is a good bit of HP over stock so it will wear down your tranny faster over time. Dont drive WOT all the time and it should last long enough.

I have 25k on my '10 and I have h&s running the hot tune. They say higher hp net better mpg if you drive calmly. Driving habits have to do with mpg and also wear and tear on the truck like the tranny. If you run it on hot for daily driving and don't beat the truck too bad your tranny will hold up. Much more than the hot tune and you will see the tranny and head studs going real quick

You will be very happy with the Mini Maxx. Dont worry about damage, the Mini is one of the most popular tuners on the market and it has been tested over an over by thousands of trucks.
