Towing on Xtreme street?

I just got my SCT from IDP and love it. This weekend I am going to be hauling a little bit of hay (130 bales) on a 35 ft flatbed GN trailer. Will I be ok to leave it on Xtreme Street or do I need to go ahead and load my Tow tune?

I was told DO NOT tow with extreme street. They told me I could do some light towing with just the regular street but they recomend to use the tow.

That was kind of my thought. I am worried about my EGT's getting a bit high. I will be safe and just use tow. Also, I have noticed a lot more turbo activity with X-street, is this normal? 70 mph holds steady at 5lbs. boost, where it was at 3 before?

Iv been running the xtreme street for about 3 weeks now and i have noticed alot more boost. My truck stayed about the same at normal driving though, usually 5 to 7psi. But if i just tap the pedal to pass or just for fun the boost will come up very fast.

They are normal Bermuda grass bales. I am guessing 45-65 lbs.

You should be fine. How far are you going? do you have an EGT gauge?

Not a good idea. EGT's might be in check, but your tranny will slip A LOT while getting started (from a stop) and your tranny temps will be higher than if you were towing with a true tow tune.
