I have a bunch of buddies that do. MattBmiller here has a ford superduty that runs pretty hard. I have a few buddies with some mean cummins and a few others with some mean duramaxes, diesels are cool, but too damned expensive.

I bought mine for work too... said I was going to keep it stock, but that lasted about 5,000 miles. I know what you are saying though, alot of people are nuts and run their trucks on "kill", the're always in the shop. Banks is very safe, it is more money than others but I think it is worth it, I just don't run it in high settings when towing, this truck sees 10k+ behind it on a regular basis. I've got 66,000 miles and have never had a problem at all........so far.

You put a shim (washer) under the spring in the Fuel Presure regulator and it helps prevent bursting or starvation at higher RPM's and with added fuel from programing or an aggressive programer.
