Judging by all the info here, the limiting factor is the Ford PCM. Any particular reason against a tuner?

do you not want a chip or cant afford one right now? Tuning is how you get the power out of these, youll need a chip if you want to make power

You really need a custom tuned chip, that wont be as hard on the trans as it will tune it. If your adding power without trans tuning its just gonna kill it faster

X2:thumb: If your custom tuned you should be fine on the trans unless you tow in overdrive all the time up in the mountains.

225xxx is not time for a rebuild. A friend of mine has 280xxx on his and he put a chip on it.
