Ruble tune questions

I just upgraded my EfiLive and requested the tunes to have the rumble idle. They set it the way I wanted it but they gave me a half page warning saying the rumble tune could cause my veins to stick or clog. I know several people are running the rumble tune, has anyone ever had any issues with it? I can't seem to find any other warnings or people complaining about those issues.

I've had efi live since I deleted my truck. About 6 months now. But my tuner was a lite tuner from anarchy diesel. I had to upgrade to get more tunes and the ability to custom tune. They told me the rumble tune was at my own risk because it keeps the veins open so the truck doesn't warm up as fast and the veins could possibly clog.

I've never heard of any problems from anyone using the tunes. I know several people use the rumble tune.

I have heard that with rumble tunes it takes a bit more time to warm up. The vanes do a sweep at idle to help prevent the vanes from sticking no matter if its a hiss or rumble tune.

Alright I installed the new tune and took it for a drive. I'm not sure if it's right... when I started the truck it still hissed even after idling for about 5 mims. The truck was at normal operating temp.
As soon as I put the truck in drive the hiss stopped and very nice rumble started. While driving the rumble is much more notable but the turbo seems like it has a lot of lag, like the veins aren't working while driving. After parking again the idle hissed as normal.it's almost like they tuned the veins backwards.

It may be normal for all I know but it definitely doesn't sound like the rumble idle a bunch of people have on the LML.

Any ideas?

My truck will warm up to operating temp then start to rumble in park.When I step on the gas it changes into a hiss until it idles back down then goes back to rumble.

That does sound backwards
