These trucks seem to all like something different for some reason so your best bet is to probably experiment. I've heard of guys running 175hp tunes on stock trannies without problems but they also baby them, also heard of plenty other dropping trannies trying to run the old crazy larry tune.

I would think anything from 100 hp on down would be safe for the trans unless you are really hard on your truck while giving you a good increase in mpg. Just remember to return to near stock before towing.

I can't help you on your tune, but from my experience with my 04.5 Cummins 4x4 auto after you get to a certain point of increasing hp and torque please keep these people in mind---You will need them--Goerend Transmission--they are the best there is---no exceptions!!!! Google them and read about their transmissions.

I agree. I guess it all depends on whats behind the steering wheel and how heavy your right foot is.
