Towing with Innovatives' Tunes?

Any MPG reports with Innovative tow tune or any of the other tunes while towing??

While your looking. How come Innovative doesn't get much respect for 6.4 on here compared to some other "armies"?

Haven't really towed much with it, but Eric gets a lot of respect from the ones that know.

I'll be going with Innovative because Eric's customer service is top notch. Spartan has a nice tuner/gauge package, but their customer service is terrible and their attitude about tune development is poor. They think we shouldn't expect mileage and only plan to put out race tunes...

I have had this discussion with you on another forum. Obviously you didn't understand the reasoning behind what we do. That is perfectly fine though. I don't feel like I should continue on about it.....that ship sailed a long time ago.

You have your reasoning, but I'll go with a company that will write a tune to fit the customer instead of a one size fits most tune.

according to my over head panel i get about 10-11 mpg with the tow tune towing my 16x8.5 enclosed with 2 55 gallon fuel drums, 3 quads, full tool box, work bench and a bunch of other random stuff in it and i set cruise and forget about it. it pulls up almost any hill with the EGT's in check.

I got to tow with my innovative tow tune the other night and man was i impressed!

I had my 08 F450 with a 30' Gooseneck Trailer behind (6,000 empty) and a fully equipped dodge wellhead truck 10,000 pounds... I towed it at 77mph I set the cruise and went up a pretty good grade hill for 3 miles just to see how it did... it held pretty much in the 75-77mph zone and the egts never got above 1120... with my truck STOCK i had to back outta the throttle cause it would hit 1420
