Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

PCM Tune (with Tow) at 150K Safe?

Trailblazer and Envoy related, but not off-road related...

As part of my camp rig preparation, the idea of even 10 extra HP is appealing and worth $160.

My concern however, is at 150k. What kind of extra strain is this putting on the transmission specifically or is it actually reducing strain?

It's as safe or unsafe as any other mod. More load on the trans, but it can make it shift faster and slip clutches less, so there's that.

I just had mine done. I have 130k on mine, I'm glad I did it.
