unless were talking one of the larger boats, i wouldnt worry about it.. how much does it weigh and how far you pulling it? I pull heavy all the time, future mods in sig.... if you really tow heavy and often im convinced 155s or 175s with a tow tune, and accompanying equipment are the way to go

I have Vivian's tow tune.I have not plugged it in yet I am having to much fun with loony wild. She had told me with 190cc injectors and my 03 turbo I should be able to hit 500hp.

The boat is 7k on the trailer. I also tow a lawn trailer every day. It weights about 4k at the most.

any tow tune/torque tow tune and if you want to push it go with a nice street if you drive like you got a trailer (to be safe) of course others tow with extreme tunes but it's not the greatest idea
