I run a tow file from Innovative with built in exhaust brake. I've towed 16k-18k with no problems.

I run a 80hp tune with a enclosed trailer in the 9000 lb range. Has to be a big hill to make me loose any speed

I just got the SCT SF3 tuner and used the canned tune 65 HP without the jake brake and noticed a HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!!! I going to give Eric a call and get him to make me a TOW tune and see how that works out. FYI I was pulling a 12000 LB Fifth wheel THIS particular time. It alos increased my mileage running about 70 75 MPH
