I loaded the 85, lots of codes, seems like others have had issues with the 85 as well. was going to load the 110. I have 4" turbo back along with a napa filter mod.

is there anything i need to worry about with the 110 tune?

injectors, oil pump, etc... or should i be fine to load and launch!

If driven with a right foot that is connected to a sane brain, yes, perfectly safe, and should even yeild pretty good mileage.

some cals are more prone to injector rattle than others, it could also depend on how well the truck has been maintained.

Id try it just to see ;)

So, i gave it a shot today. Felt real good at light and part and up to about 80% or so tps. At WOT, i got the injector rattle pretty good.

My question would be, for everyday driving. I really don't "wot" the truck.

So, Is what you meant by "sane brain" driving the truck on that tune, but no WOT?

Last questions. Will I get better mileage out of the 110 tune, than the tow or 85 if I am not running it out?

What would be needed to run the truck out on the 110. A better HPOP or injectors, or both?

by sane brain, I meant, not hot rodding it all over the place, lol.

More pump would likely help with the 110 tune more than anything else.

Which tune will net the best mileage?

ideally, the 110 can provide the best mileage due to the amount of timing added.
