i have read that the first gear in the manuals were geared to high before... I would not do an atlas 80 or atlas40 ficm tune because your stock exhaust will raise egts too much while towing... the ficm tuns burn fuel longer and have a warning in regards to towing and needing to monitor egts more.
sct tuner with a tow tune would be good start. and a higher flowing exhaust would help. I noticed after muffler delete my turbo spooled up quicker at lower rpms.
If you tow often an egt gauge or pyrometer often called would be a great tool but not much help with 1rst gear issue.
