Shouldn't hurt the motor like said, have a good tranny cooler on it.

I have the same setup only with a 383, 4100 stall, and a 4.10 gear. I only drive mine an hour long max, but it never fails me and I have a little over 2000 miles on it. Only have about 300-400 on the 4.10s though.

You need a Gearvendor's overdrive if you frequently run it that long to help you on gas.
