i have had a few tow tunes from a few differant companies, and some created less power then the stock tune in differant areas... for one example, an ID tow tune i had ran less boost and EGT for a given set of conditons then stock, i brought that up, and ID said that due to timing changes, they can make more torque with less egt and boost in some cases, etc....... my point was that some tow tunes have built in saftey features for towing that even the stock tune does not have.... I tested this..... I pulled my 15k trailer up a 4 mile hill, in a certain spot if just floored the pedal and let the truck control the parameters..... the ID tow tune throttled back way quicker then stock, stock i thought the engine was going to gernade, high rpms and 30 plus boost....... the stock tune is built to do it all, so its feasable a custom tow tune would have more built in saftey limits and in cases feel "less powerful"..... i didnt like that though...LOL... since i have had custom tunes built by DP that lay down the most torque possible, for towing, and i keep the engine safe by monitoring...
