Personally, I would not run it on that setting until you put an EGT Guage on. I have a different programmer and I can easily hit 12-1300 without trying too much. Each truck is a little different. Is the $200 or so that you save worth risking a $10,000 engine?

if you gonna get a tuner, you really need guages to keep an eye on things and a tranmission upgrade if you want to run at a higher level (90-100hp).

I am waiting to do anything on mine until I get the guages in. Just fear of tearing it up plus they look cool.
