Superchips / Towing

Good day everyone, I'm still new to Diesels, having purchased my first one mid last year - 2008 6.4 CC FX4.. Loving it as an upgrade to my 2003 V10.. Right after I got the truck, I put in a new Radiator due to a leak, did the DPF / DOC / EGR Delete using a Gearbox-Z 4.0+ and ran stock tune up until a couple of weeks ago when someone gave me a VIN Locked Superchips 1855..

Paid the unlock fees and have tested the Performance and Save Tunes.. Really like the difference in power and performance so far.. Currently using Torque App / Android to monitor the truck.. I think this will be great while I save for a real tuner / custom tunes..

Occasionally I tow my boat (about 2500 ponds), and less often a car trailer (upwards of 5 - 6000 pounds).. Does anyone know the towing limits of the Superchips tunes? I have asked the question of them, but no response yet..

The tuner says Performance = No towing, Save = Up to 6000 Pounds, and Tow = Maximum Truck Limit.. The stuff I have read doesn't jive with that..

Any input will be appreciated.. Thanks..

What tunes are on the tuner? I don't know what the hp increases are on the SCT ones, but I wouldn't tow heavy with anything over a +210hp tune.

Thanks for the reply.. From what I understand, the tunes are as follows -
Performance = 114hp / 206ftlbs
Mileage XS = 51.4hp / 110ftlbs
Tow = Transmission Only

But the tuner verbiage states (seen while programming) -
Performance = No towing
Save = Up to 6000 Pounds
Tow = Maximum Truck Limit

Just trying to find a happy medium for towing, instead of going back to stock so often to tow the boat..

Thanks again...
