Good points, also I truely don't have a recommendation, just subscribed for learning. I put 155/30s recently and then added a ATLAS 40 Ficm tune. Each bumped my EGTs up 100 degrees. I do tow a 18-20k trailer all the time, mostly around Vegas, but I'm doing a short tour at the pentagon and don't get to take the toys out. I have not pulled my big trailer since but the rise in EGTs do worry me. In my case I have had 2 tow tunes bulit, one mild and one safe that really pulls a lot of fuel, I could use if EGTs get bad. I could also drop the Ficm tune back to stock. I have a gogo intake and banks IC that help resist the EGTs. If you didn't have the intake manifold and/or IC, your EGTs will be that much higher. I haven't towed yet so I can't give you any advice, wish I could. Please follow up with what you go with and how it tows. For referance with stock sticks on tow tune, after gogo and banks, I could not get EGTs over 1250 ever. Now with current setup on my standard tow tune I can see 1450 if I drop the hammer. This is no trailer.
