HELP! Just Got my SCT X/Cal 3.... Question

Lone Ranger in Oz here.... (Australia)

Just took the plunge, and JUST NOW RECEIVED my Livewire... EGT Probe.. And MBRP 3.5 Downpipe !! Little kid at Christmas... !!
And 4" Free Flow exhaust is scheduled for next WED... You Guys got me into this with all the performance talk..!!!

Now there is not Economy Tune on my SCT, I guess I have to download that... Will have to figure it out... Anyway, my question:

All I can find preloaded is "Street" "Tow 50, Tow 65, and Performance....

I have read the instruction three times, can anyone tell me what Street Is???

Which of them is likely to give me the best fuel economy empty and towing???

Do I need to download the economy tune??? I am a bit shy of running Street until I get the EGT Probe and 4" exhaust...

Can anyone please tell me WHAT Street is? And what they think the best fuel economy tune would be towing about 9000-10,000 (3500-4000kg)...???

It is 5 PM here, It will have to be one of you Night Owls in America....

Thank you in advance for your kind help... Beer is on me...!

Well Guys, THANK YOU,
But WHAT IS THE STREET TUNE?

And I have to tow 6000-8000 trailers to the weighbridge several times a week, can I do that ??????

One more thing, so I can drive HOME... Do I leave it plugged in??? Or after I tune can I unplug it?? It is pretty warm, and is on even with the ignition off... Can I just unplug it with the Street tune aboard, from the OB Port??

HELP

You dont have to unplug the livewire, hold the JOG wheel button in for a few seconds and the unit will power off.
