Gearhead Tunes

Am looking at tunes for the first time and I am considering the 3pack from Gearhead. SRL or SRL+, 8K Tow, Unlimited tow. I am mostly using the truck as a daily driver, with the odd tow under 6k lbs, what exactly is the difference between the SRL/SRL+? The truck is now studded and deleted.


Also, can you tow with the SRL at all? If not, would it be ok just to haul a 5000lb boat out of the water with SRL or would you need to switch to a tow tune? Hopefully these aren't stupid questions!

Thanks in advance

The plus on the SRL is a tad more timing and I believe tad more boost.

I'm sure you could tow with SRL but watch those EGTs.

Gearheads makes some nice safe tunes.

Pulling a 5k boat out of the water shouldn't be an issue in SRL as long as you drive rationally

I don't see in your Sig whether you're studded or not. If you're not studded, IMHO I wouldn't risk hauling a 5000lb with SRL, that is you want to blow your head gaskets, be on the safe side and load a tow Tune that modifies the tranny shift points.

The truck is in for studs right now, havent updated sig yet. I am not looking to tow long distance on SRL, mostly wondering if I'd have to change tunes just to drag a 6k boat up the boat ramp out of the water 100ft? I will be getting some tow tunes as well for if I had to go any distance. My main question though is for a mostly daily driver is SRL the way to go? Or better with studs to go for SRL+? Is it a huge difference, I am wanting some better mpg, good shifts and just general good driveability.

Pulling a boat out of the lake should be perfectly fine. Ive hauled 13k for 200 miles in it. Although I by no means recommend it. I know the risks

Thanks! I see you have the PMM coolant filter, are you happy with? That is the next thing I will be adding once funds recover a little bit!

It does the job. But PMMs business practices have gone sour since I got it. Id recommend getting one elsewhere

Oh I wasn't aware of that. I have also looked at Sinister and Dieselsite. I like PMM's hoses, other than the blue!
