Built it but dont want to blow it.

Like the title says, this is my work truck that is used for the family and representing my business. I drive anywhere from 200-400 miles a day. A lot of freeway driving about 70%. That being said I want a tune that will give me a good power boost when needed, but not balls to the wall when trying to take off from a light or on ramp. What I am running right now is the SCT canned street tune. It works great but I think it might be a little weak. I also tow a 4000k trailer about 10% of the time. So I have all the mods in my sig to make this truck last as long as possable, and I dont want a tune that will hurt anything that I am trying to prevent. Basicly what everyone wants. Is this kind of tune out their??

I have the Looney Wild from Vivian. It is just like stock with a little extra power with normal throttle, but put it to the floor and you better have a hold of somethin!

I would say you're pretty much set for the long run and shouldn't have to worry about breaking it. You put in ARP's and deleted the EGR, those are two of the biggest problems you could have had. No experience with them, but everyone says Innovative is great.
