The economy tune is a waste of time. I have one but will never use it. I have Innovatives Tow Aggressive w/Turbo Brake, Street, Xtreme Street and Xtreme Race. I was running the Xtreme Street daily but recently switched to the Tow tune to experiment.
As far as towing, the light loads that you will see won't limit your tuning much. Eric says that the Street tune that I have is good for at least 6,000 lbs. I have towed approx 4500 lbs with it and saw no higher EGTs than normal. I plan to experiment with that tune and the 8,000 lb camper. I have towed as much as 16,500 lbs with the tow tune. Max EGT that I saw on some hard pulls was never over 1050 and the tranny temp stayed below 185 all on a 90 degree day.
I can't really equate Dj's tunes to what I have because I haven't run their tunes yet. Cal Vivian and tell what you are looking to do and she will have good advice for you. I know DJ doesn't like to see heavy towing with his tunes, but at 5,000 lbs and under you should be good. As far as fuel economy, the Looney should net you as good or better than any of the other tunes. The trick is to be able to drive the truck in a fashion conducive to good fuel economy!
