Duramax performance upgrades???

Is it safe to do anything to these???? I had a bad experience chipping a 6.0 ford. I am a little gun shy now. BUT........I was just given a bully dog "tripple dog" set up for free and I am wondering if it is safe to play with it???? And do you guys tow your haulers with it installed????? Help a ninja out

As far as I heard, there is no problems with program tuner on the Duramax. 3years ago Duramax had bad injectors, but it has been taken care of.

Most towing should be done with the programer on "TOW MODE" not any higher unless you have substantial motor upgrades.

As a matter of Fact Bigg Jim Mopar is correct. I was just the Chevy dealership and they sold the Edge Programers for the Duramax. Parts guy said the Warranty all parts they install.

Hypertech actually shows on their website the law (or rule, or whatever) that says the warranty can't be voided for the programmers.

I installed the Hypertech PTM in my 6.0 Powerstroke (the old dually) and it was fast as fuck too, it even scratched shifting into 2nd gear and it was an automatic!

I have 05 duramax, Banks cat back exhaust, six gun tuner with PDA. I love the PDA I can watch so many paramaters of things going on it is great. If anything codes I can view it and clear the code and keep driving. The PDA Is worth its weight in gold.. Warranty I dont know, if something happens I will remove it and it shows nothing in the computer as far as a chip may have been in. The power is great, I want to put a banks intercooler in though. Next week ordering magnatek tranny pan and diff cover....help keep things cool....Put cool air intake on also Jim...

I have been told you dont want to make smoke or it will plug up some filter???? Is this the cat that their talkin about??? And wont the programmers create black smoke??? I know my powerstroke did when it was chipped.
