Question Which Innovative SCT tunes should I pick?

I was going to get Xtreme Race, Tow and Economy but I've seen several people say they get their best mileage on the race tune.

3 come with the programmed X3.

Here's the list:

Our most common Ford 6.0 programs are below:
Xtreme Race- 420-440rwhp/760-780rwtq - Converter locked in all gears.
Xtreme Street- 420-430rwhp/730-760rwtq- Not recommended for towing.
Aggressive Street - 400rwhp/700rtwq.
Street- 380rwhp/650rwtq- Tow up to 10k lbs.
Tow- 310rwhp/560rwtq- Towing over 10k lbs up to the maximum of the truck.
Economy- Mileage program only

I will probably tow very little and very rarely. I mainly want performance and mpg (when my foot isn't stuck in it).

I would not get the economy. I would get Street or Xtreme Street in its place.

Then I may get the Xtreme Race, Xtreme Street and the Street tune for occasional towing.

You can get a towing tune with turbo brake if I recall right. I would do that just incase it ever came down to you having to tow. I didnt plan on towing with mine and have had 7000lbs behind it a couple times

I don't know for sure. I'm going to assume not but the previous owner did sink a ton in this truck so it's possible. I specifically asked them about the studs issue in my first email. They said "Yes, your tunes are for a non studded truck. Even if it has studs, it's probably not worth pushing the truck harder for a few hp."

You will blow your head gaskets without studs+egr cooler its just a matter of time. Innovative tunes are for any truck studded or not.

I feel that my xstreet is faster than my xrace.. IMO that the xstreet gets the best mix driving mpg and the xrace gets the best highway mpg.

X Street & Tow Brake. The third one won't matter because you'll never use it. X Street does great as a daily driver and gets solid mileage. I just never got used to X Race; didn't like the shifting on it.
