Would it make more sense to "chip" it or do a 5 Star Dyna-tune or the like?
I think you will find that your limiting factor will be your transmission. You need to determine the maximum torque allowed (is it an Allison 1000?) or you risk blowing it up as you crest the connector on your way to Merritt! I'm not sure how you plan to use this MH, but I would suggest you seriously examine the CCC......the CGWR in the context of how you would travel......the maximum hitch weight & GCVWR to determine your max. toad capacity.
I would also urge you to be very cautious with this powertrain. I am sure the 260hp/525t ISB is a fine and probably adequate engine for this rig, but most people do not live in Vernon, BC and need to climb-outta the Rockies to get anywhere. It will be a very slow (& hot) struggle to the top of the Connector, to the summit of the Rogers, to clear the Creston/Salmo with this set-up.
