17 mile hill climb with 8,500lbs

So today was the first "test" of the new setup, H&S minimax no pwr), H&S egr delete, MBRP dpf/def delete.

17 miles of climbing with 8,000lbs of TT (bumper pull) + gear, with an AVG grade of 6.8%, and some sections at over 10% grade. Set cruise at 55mph and had tow haul on. Truck sat in 4th with 30lbs of boost at peak and usually was around 22-24. Max egt was 1050 and max engine coolant was 213. I'd say it did alright for dragging a flat nosed brick in the wind with 3.31gearing.

I may try mild next time... maybe...
