Yeah can't see that really hurting anything if it was one instance.

I love the superchips, it's the only tuner I've ever personally used on my vehicles. I have some experience through others with diablo, none with hypertech. Hypertech's claims appear to be similar to the SC and diablo for this engine, but I don't think they have as many options overall. I doubt that is the cause, I don't see how any tuning could cause rod knock or piston slap. It MAYBE could have had an extreme detonation from bad tune at high rpm, but again I'd think a knock sensor would prevent it, and you'd DEFINITELY notice something that severe if it had happened. Even then, if it did happen, it likely wouldn't hurt anything as I said before the bottom end on the new 4.7L is extremely strong.
