Question on lope tunes.

Alright I have heard from some people that lope tunes so no damage to a truck and then some people say that a lope tune will destroy injectors. So what's the deal on lope tunes? I think on 6.0's they sound mean but what does a lope tune do to a truck that's bad?

Don't see how it could hurt the injectors.

I didn't know you could get a 6.0 to lope with just a tune.

Re: Question on lope tunes.

This is what Eric from innovative told me regarding lope on the 6.0

"the lope tune is hard on the injectors. For common rail, like the Durmax, it’s simply adding Rail Pressure at idle. On the 6.0L, we have an HEUI fuel system and we increase ICP. It’s hard on the internals of the injectors, they are much more complicated than a CR setup."

Re: Question on lope tunes.

What is the point of the lope tune though? Is it just for the sound?
