This is precisely the problem with tuning the diesel- the transmission is only designed to handle up to 500 or so lb-ft. Any more and you're seriously shortening its lifespan.

I'm happy for now but in the future I'd consider a mild tune up to about 300hp and 480 lb-ft. Any more is too much of a hassle.
