People with a Powermax what tunes???

I just had the Powermax put on my truck yesterday. So the question is what tune do you guys recommend. My truck is stock motor wise with stock head bolts. I want a tune that adds a little more power, helps with the low end lag, and I want to be able to tow with whatever tune I get. I don't want to have to change tunes whenever I need to tow. So basically I guess I'm wondering what tow tune is a good one to run with the Powermax??????

A lot of our tuning customers run the Powermax. We have had really good results. If you plan on towing, you will want a separate tune for that. While you can definitely daily drive in one of our tow tunes, you will enjoy the shifting a lot better with an economy or performance tune when empty.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like more info on our tunes.

Justin I am trying to find a tune that I could run in any situation. It would be nice to run a tow tune everyday in case I were to need to tow I could and not have to switch tunes. Is there any reason the shifting on a tow tune wouldn't work as a daily driver??? And would your tow tune be safe for stock head bolts??? And would it decrease the low end lag??

I would say TSD, but they don't do email tunes anymore, so next would be Gearhead for sure.

I do not run his tow tune.. I run the srl tune and my egts stay very low on that tune. Not to mension it is a great tune and would reccomend it to anyone... Im sure the 8k tune he has works very well. Call him and tell him what you want.
