Question H S tuners come in...

Guys I will be towing 8k lbs from NC to WA state in the next couple of days and would like to know what tune you guys recommend. I will have the black maxx with the H S cat/dpf delete and the stock intake. I want to run a tune as safe as possible for towing.

Yes, with 8 lbs i think you should ride your bike instead of driving...

I don't think you can run a stock intake with a tune and dpf/doc delete.

Its not a good idea at all to run any performance tune with a 8k lb load.
Unless its a tow tune which isn't available with H&S yet.

You can run the mild tune and be fine aslong as you keep an eye on trans slip and egts..

Well I got the HS performance tuner and the cat/dpf delete installed and all I can say is wow! Got a few questions though:
What egt temperatures are dangerous when towing? I think I saw 850 today.
Why is my pyro 2 stuck in 622? It seems as it is turned off.
Defueling? Do I leave that alone? What does that do?
When I run "no power" does the tranny run with the stock tune? I was recommended to tow with the lowest level....no power? Or did they mean mild?
