Best Canned tune for towin? Xcal2

I have to go on a trip Tuesday and I don't have time to get custom tunes for my new Xcal2. Which of the canned tunes is best for towing, Econo, Street, or Looney?

Looney is not a canned tune.

If I remember correctly my Xcal 3's canned tunes are Eco, tow, and performance. I would assume it would be the same for the xcal 2

The Looney is not a canned tune. It is a custom tune from DJ.

If you don't have gauges use the economy setting. Call and order some innovative diesel tunes monday morning. You'll have them in plenty of time.

It sounds like you have an Xcal2 from DJ's with custom tunes, not the canned tunes. I wouldn't tow on street or looney. You can tow light loads on econo, but I wouldn't tow more than 5 or 6k without setting back to stock or getting a tow tune. Like I said before, though. Check your strategy and your friend's and make sure they match.

if it does have custom tunes from DJ's already on there, u need to make sure which strategy they were setup for, if not your strategy u could have all sorts of issues.
you could look your strategy up and get the freebie download tunes from Spartan for the SCT to give u a temporary setup until you can get your custom tunes from whomever u decide to go with

I agree with the above poster, Matt does have some pretty good tow tunes, from what I hear. I have not personally run any of the tow tunes from Spartan, but know folks who have and they speak well of them.

I tried the free spartan downloads and it says that it is locked when I try to Add File on Liveload. Anything else I can do?
