edit - Lets see some pictures of this beast

Going around the block wont hurt anything in my opinion, I have quite a few times. Just remember that it wont regen so you have to put the stock tuning in after a bit so it can clean itself out.

yeah the 210 tune should be about as clean as stock anyway, i dont think it would be too bad, you can always blow the dpf out with shop air and clean it good enough so it will regen (not that i would know)

Load a tune, run the crap out of it for a few miles and return it to stock. Just make sure to backup your stock file as soon as you get the first tune loaded. Don't wait and forget then to find out that you lost your stock file.....

You should be good, just dont run it too much so you dont dirty up the DPF/DOC. I agree with 02...Pics of your truck would be sweet.
