Bump. I'd like to know this too. How do you like Inno's tow tune compared to the canned tow tune?

You are fine pulling that weight with that Tow tune. Egts- Dont hold it over 1200 for very long. Transmission- dont let it get over 200.

Actually it does if you know anything about tuning. Higher horsepower tunes increase cylinder pressures.

Most peoples tow tunes are designed for 10-14k max trailer weight. Most tow tunes that are written to tow heavier than that are trans only files anyway

Woah.... No attitude needed pal. i was stating that you were wrong by saying that, i didn't understand how it would be better and that's why i said it didn't make sense. because no i don't know about tuning that's why i was hoping to get some input on it so i could learn. but thank you for telling me that's very intersting info. But i have another question if you don't mind. and i;m not being a smartass i really just don't understand. If your stock settings can tow up to 20k why waste the money to get a tune to pull 10-14k when the stock settings will do it?
