Default Tony Wildman econo tune

My buddy told me that he read online somewhere that the Tony Wildman econo tune has a reputation for blowing up motors because the tune has too much timing. Is there any truth to this? I've searched a whole lot of forums to look for anything and all I found was one post vaguely referring to the tune having issues but no examples.

If it matters I have:
01 f350 CCLB 7.3/4r100 250k
6637 intake
Tony wildman tuner
unknown 5" stainless exhaust
Wicked Wheel 2

Benefit of the doubt. But I'll be watching this closely. I'll go ape**** on someone if they are stupid enough to try something like that.

I'm not bagging anybody, I just want to not blow my truck up. I googled a lot and found a post that hinted at it.

I'm ok, between getting tired of the forums and my wife having health issues.. i needed a break. Just a bit upset over recent events. Only reason I resurfaced really.

I have an econo position, and I've never had any issues like that. Doesn't sound like there is more timing, actually sounds quieter. Though I don't use it much.
