Sct how to question

So I have been searching and can't find my answer. So I'm towing my 12'x7'x7' enclosed trailer loaded down and I know I can't tow with my tunes. So I was wondering if there was a way to turn the egr off while having the stock tune loaded. I know there is a tow tune and all that but the trailer really doesn't have that much weight in it to need it. Also I have a sct 3015 tuner and egr delete thanks for any and all responses. Oh and I'm towing from New York to Texas and its 1800 miles so letting it just throw the code will be annoying and won't let me know if something else is wrong

The stock tune is just that, the stock tune. You can't turn off the egr or anything else when you are running it.

Your best bet is to run a tow tune, that way you can keep your power levels safe for towing and have the egr turned off.

Actually depending on the sct unit.. for example the sct sf3 has a tranny only tune, which allows you to run stock with turning off egr, and playing with shifting points.

ok so the 3015 is the sf3, and under strategy tunes (canned) there is a transmission only option.. think its the last one.
