New to this form sct towing questions

Ok first of all I'm new to this form and new to any form so I have a 2003 f350 6.0 powerstroke I have a 4 inch straight pipe turbo back with a powermax stage 1 turbo egr was deleted with 10 miles on it new hpop new injectors new icp new iPr new crank shift positioning sensor, it has a leveling kit on 37x20x13.50. . And I run a sct tuner.
My question is I pull about 23000 to 27000 pounds for work just curious when I know you shouldn't pull on performance or street with that much weight but dose the towing 65 will it pull better then street or performance would or dose towing physically change things to pull more efficiently this may be a dumb question sorry if I spelt anything wrong too

If you are pulling that much weight on a regular basis the I would suggest getting a good custom tow tune. Tow that much weight with a street or performance tune could lead to some damage. I have done it a few times myself, , but not on a regular basis.

Are you running just the canned tunes right now.

Oh and, you did spell a few things wrong , but we won't hold it against you too much.

Yes I'm just using canned tunes, and I use it to tow that much almost every day the only thing I don't care for is how much turbo lag I have from the start and I'm kinda thinking the only way to get more power from the start is 4.10s I have 3.73s

If it were me pulling that much weight, stock tune only. 37' with 3.73 gearing is hurting your towing ability.

the towing tune will have less power then the other tunes. Some less fuel but mostly less timing advancment. If you towed with the performance setting you will feel more power but it will not last long until your heads pop or crack a piston. With daily towing I'd load the tow tune and leave it, or just run stock. Any 6.0 that tows that much daily has a lot of maintainence in its future, start saving...

You need a custom tow tune for that powermax. That is part of your problem.. regearing you axles will help a lot as well.
