Towing with Tunes

Is it safe to tow heavy loads with the performance tune? By heavy loads I mean a 15 foot tandem axle loaded down with about 6,000 pounds.

Goin big or goin home!

Glowshift Gauges

Sct SF3


4'' Farmboy Diesel aluminum exhaust with cat delete

SCT 3D decal = +50 hp

And many many more to come

as long as ur trans and egts dont get out of hand its fine. 6k is nothing for these trucks. i always use my 80hp tune towing. last time i towed about 10k with no problems.

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way... dont brake.

shouldnt be that bad.. but are you just running the stock canned tunes or are you running custom tunes?

just keep an eye on your gauges.. thats the most important part
