Anyone have problems with their towing tune?
I have an 06 F250 that I recently had the EGR deleted on.
When I had the truck tuned to get rid of the check engine light for the EGR, my tuner gave me a stock tune and a 50 hp towing tune.
The odd thing was, the stock tune felt slower than the truck felt with supposedly no tune on it. I don't know if the truck HAD a tune on it when I bought it, or if the tuner just gave me an ultra conservative tune, but the guy that did the EGR delete said it was making less boost than stock.
He told me these trucks top out at around 24 or 25 psi of boost and, per the stock gauge, it was not making over 20.
In any case, I put the 50 hp towing tune on and the thing FLEW with that on it. I think part of it may have had someting to do with the fact the shift programming was obviously changed too, but either way it had me concerned about blowing the head gaskets.
So, my question is, has anyone had any problems with their towing tunes? Someone I know told me the towing tune is all he had (from Superchips) and his heads started to lift a bit. I am just trying to figure out if I can run with this tune or if I really need to wait until I can afford to do studs and gaskets.
BTW, I use this truck for towing almost everyday.
