I use Matt's 8k tune... I think he says 10k is okay with a studded truck but I might me wrong as I just recently did my bulletproof endeavor and I bought the tow tunes 2 1/2 years ago.

I once crossed the scales (not at a weight station but a rock quarry) at 24,xxx and I was using his 8k tune. Only had to slow down once and that was because I was traveling up an 6% for about 4 miles and the EGTs where getting high.

I run the Looney Wild with Atlas 40 while towing my boat. It gets the EGTs up but not out of control.

Matt's tunes (especially his SRL) are probably the cleanest tunes out there. Absolutely my favorite part about his tune.
