What tunes to get?

I just ordered a SCT and an edge insight from Innovative, now i have to figure out what three tunes to get. I have a 07 250 and the only mod is a 5" turbo back stright pipe exhaust. I have a very heavy foot so my main concern is something that is safe for my motor and trans. Ted recommended that i get the extreme street, street, and tow aggressive. Would yall reccomend all of these tunes or should i get something else? I am thinking about swapping the tow aggressive for a smoke tune.

Those are the tunes I got originally then I broke down and bought the x-race. Make sure you get exhaust brake on the tow tune, its sweet. Im not sure innovative will do a smoke tune, if you really wanna smoke that bad make a smoke switch but I wouldnt recommend it.

Just get those 3, a smoke tune just waste fuel and smuts up the bumper. I'm not sure I got the aggressive tow tune but the other 2 I have. You'll love the street and extreme street. I finally just left mine on the street tune to keep from ripping out the limited slip again.

How did you manage that? To the OP, those are the three tunes I have and I like them a lot. Street tows great and xtreme street is tons of fun but I have heard xtreme race is more fun and gets better mileage

Honestly, being stupid. A buddy of mine wanted to go for a ride and well I turned around in an intersection and didn't have it exactly straight when I got on it. I never heard anything break but I noticed later it wasn't 'too limited in the slipping'. She wouldn't turn both tires even in slick mud. I bought an extended warranty so I used it. I was also told Ford had a 'silent recall' when they rebuilt it and the new clutches were a better design/material. I find it hard to believe I ripped it out in just a few jabs since the Lightning has the same design and has held up for 34k. I'm sure I had a little help from the previous owner since it was used.
