210 Tow Tune Question

So tomorrow is my first long pull with my truck towing about 8500lb travel trailer. With this in mind i switched from the 210 to the 210 tow tune tonight and went out to do the trans relearn.

After finishing that I drove home like normal and noticed how hard it shifts now into every gear. My question is, is this normal? Will it be better with the trailer on the back? I know if it shifts that hard and jerks the truck my wife will be complaining the whole ride so i need some input to decide if i go back to the normal 210 or not.

Thanks

It's totally normal. It was made to lock the converter up so it will not slip....

Thanks for the quick reply Mick, great product.

To all those wondering what to buy don't buy a Spartan because it's the best buy it because their customer service rocks. This isn't the first time i have seen a Spartan guy jump in within a few hours..

Thanks,

John

Just be sure to keep an eye on your EGT's while towing, they tend to climb more then usual.

truck ran great and towed awesome.

Here were some of my temps:

EGT 850 - 950 some hilly driving going 75
EOT 204
ECT 202

highs
EGT 1100 - Climbing a long hill not very steep
EOT 212, this was only for a second or 2 other than that saw 210 a few times
ECT 204

These temps seem normal?

EGT's aren't an issue with the lower tunes, but the amount of fuel we are moving with these big tunes is making them get decently hot. We don't see 2,000 degrees, but 1700-1800 degrees in a 1/4 mile pass isn't difficult to achieve with the 275 and 310 tunes.
