De tuning

Okay, I posted this in the wrong forum before. I have a 2011 F350 with the build in the bad valve area. I have an extended warranty good for about another 12000 miles. If this truck does not eat a valve before the end of warranty then I will have the heads rebuilt and the deletes done. Here is my question. I would like to be able to dial back the horsepower from the present 400 to about 350. I haul a 4000 pound truck camper and that is the heaviest I haul. Is there a tuner out there that will let me do this? Second question. Would dialing back the horsepower help with longevity. Thanks for any help on this.

94 F350 Dually 2wd,4:10,E40D,R&D pump, sticks, and 3"turbo downpipes,Dynomax 3" exhaust,Gear vendors, 24000 trans cooler,

Tried to find another post and quote it. Something along the lines of "easy to detune - don't push the go pedal as far."

From what I've read it's better for the engine to work it hard than to baby it. More heat, cleaner burn for the emission crap anyways.

There is, and it's really cheap!

Put a piece of 2x4 under your accelerator pedal. That will limit your horsepower.

What he said ^^

And you don't have 400 at the wheels that's at the crank.

It's 320-330 at the wheels.

So your already there.
