Should I or should I not tow with the 345???!

Gonna tow the race truck to Dirty Diesel on Sunday. I got the KEM 345 tune loaded, I figure why not. EGT's seem to be down. Tranny oil smells good. Towed 15,000lbs. with the 310 many times. I'm a sensible guy when it comes to towing, why not? The other reason is I'm curious of mileage with this tune.

Hey...there is only one way your gonna find out....tow that rig. Hopefully there are some good 6 - 7% grades along the way and you can really find out how stout that motor and transmission is in your truck. In all honesty, I have know idea what I’m talking about related to your truck or your tune….but I would like to see what happens to your truck. Hey..you know the old saying, a man knowes his truck better than anyone…So Go-For-It

Heck you may get on here a tell us your truck loaded with the KEM 345 tune....towed that rig like a greased snake through a garden hose...Let us know how it towes..
