Trans tune ?? (H&S)

So I'm looking at picking up an h and s mini max this weekend. I use my truck for work, it hauls around 3000lbs. of weight full time in the bed. My truck is an F350 with a 2.5" lift running 35's. S&B intake, 4" afe downpipe back exhaust, and currently an edge cs. Which tune (tranny and hp) would everyone recommend for every day hauling?? I do about an equal mix of city and highway driving if that makes much difference. Any help would be appreciated guys

I run s1m. It feels the most like stock to me and does good for daily driving and hauling equipment.

I also run S1M for tranny tune. most people suggest towing with no power or mild but some people tow on the higher ones as well. Just be sure to watch your temps & adjust accordingly. Also it is a good idea to adjust your defuel settings as an extra safety precaution.

when the parameter is reached that you set your defuel to, say boost is set to 38 psi, it backs everything down to not exceed it. Now the wording may not sound right here but I am sure you understand what I mean.

Mine are
oil temp 220
hot coolant 220
cold coolant 160
transmission 190
boost 38
egt 1300

I would try the mild tuning as well as the hot damm tuning. Just remember that you need to give each a little time for the tranny to smooth out anytime you change to a different tune easy, mild or hot damm. Same thing as when you switch tranny tunes. Some guys say their truck runs better on the mild tuning while others say the hot damm works better for them. As well the easy tunes cycle the egr and the I don't believe the mild or hot damm do.
