Towing with Mini Maxx.......what setting?

What setting do those of you with the Mini Maxx use when you are towing? I have heard the mild setting from a few people......Any input?

it's not necessarily a certain level to tow with...depends on what you're towing...just keep your gauges in check and almost any power level is ok...I wouldn't run race tunes though (backpressure might get too high, i.e. hot damn setting on hot. my .02).

Bigaustin:
Advertised number per H & S site - figures are added RWHP
None 0hp
Mild 40hp
Wild 80hp
Hot 120hp
They have dyno sheets listed on their site too.

09 Monster:
Do you still use the factory tow/haul mode even though the converter is supposed to lock up in 3rd with the MM?

Just bought our horse trailer last night. 28' 2 horse with large LQ. Trying to get a real number on empty weight....

My truck gets the best fuel mileage while towing in the Wild setting.

I run mine on hot all the time. Haven't DL the Hot Damn yet, still having too much fun with the ones I have! I pull two different trailers, one weighs 10000 lbs, the other around 8000. No problems at all. The extra 250 RWHP helps pass the grannies too
