what tune to run?

So I have the xcal3 with tunes from dj's economy,tow,street,looney..I would like your opinion on what to run I use my truck for work. I tow a 3500 pound texture rig with tools in the bed and after work nothing so what would be good to run all the time?....I am running economy right now but I was thinking should I run tow all the time and also how does tow run without towing anything and info would be great thanks

I personally would run the street tune for a lil more power and better mpgs... That small of a load shouldn hurt anythin on that tune

Well I guess I should give them both a try because the economy is kind of week next to the other ones

are you using any gauges at all? I would be careful without gauges and running your truck hard. Plus with that 03 its cool when you see your boost gauge hit 30+ pounds

Yeah...I like seeing my boost go up too.

But it's "un-cool" when I see my EGT gauge go over 1500*.....lol
