not real sure how high i reved it.i was at about 75-80% throttle on the h&s hot damn tune.new rod is in and truck is running fine.**** happens when you play hard.im just glad it was a easy and cheap fix.new tunes are awesome. they added a performance tester so you can do 1/4 mi drags and itll track your time and speeds.also a 0-60 data log as well.pretty cool.

I was just wondering what the cause was. A big tune is really no reason to bend a push rod? There should be a rev limiter at some point. I hit it all the time in my 6.0 at 4250rpms. Seven years and never an issue. I have the chromoly push rods in my truck, but never had an issue before or after.
