Looking for a tow tune

Sorry for another tune thread but I can't seem to find an answer. I think I've decided on a tune for my daily driving. I am also looking for opinions on tow tunes. Does anyone have any good reviews of Matt or Vivian's tow tunes? I would really appreciate some reviews especially of people with stock head bolts.

I have Matts and it is a good tow tune.
The only thing I don't like is that Matt will not put in the turbo exhaust braking.

What is the reasoning for that? Is it hard on the turbo?

He says it is hard on the tranny.
But all the other tuners do it and I have never heard of any one having a problem.
I want to try Vivians when I get a chance.

I run Eric's Aggressive Tow Tune with Jake Brake, it blows Matt's tune out of the water.

I run Matts 8k tow as a daily driver just for the fact I never know when I'm gonna hook up to a trailer and I don't want to be reflashing all the time. Its pretty quick too. I also have Erics tow with brake but I don't run it just for the fact that I don't want to listen to the exhaust brake when I'm not towing. Theyre both good tunes.
