No damage or head issues, just some irratic running issues, occassional codes, and inability to complete an EGR check (P1000). It ran strong, additional power just wasn't worth it to me personally. To keep EGTs in check, you need to monitor and ensure good outflow via exhaust and good inflow via quality intake/filter. With my current config, I can tow at altitude with hills and hit 1200 pretty easy - but it stops right around there. Although many like the torque converter to lock in 4th and 5th gears (better on the tranny), I find that also drives up EGTs. With the standard tune the tranny seems to downshift under load more readily and keep the EGTs in check. My tranny temps have never exceeded 200, so I'm in good shape there.
