TOW Tunes

What tow tunes are you guys running and what are the differences? I run IDP Agg tow with turbo brake, I tow 10k monthly, it does well just seeing what everyone else uses.

Same tune I run (minus the turbo brake)

I load it in the summer whenever I tow the boat or wheelers, and I run it all winter long. Xtreme tunes or any of the "hot" files I've got do NOT work well in cold weather and icy roads

I use a 60 HP tow tune from Cale at BTS. I actually run it everyday and get pretty good mileage on it. It has the turbo brake feature and also uses the extra gear in the transmission.

What would be the most weight to use on a street tune, and do you use the tow/haul?

I use IDPs Street but have been thinking of getting Cale's 100hp tow with braking. No complaints with using Street just thought it might be worth trying something different.
