towing with H&S safe?????

Im wanting to hear about using the tow tune while towing from anyone with experience. I have a 35' 5 er and just got an H&S and my 4 " exhaust. My previous truck was a 2006 6.0 tuned and eventually bulletproofed with all the obvious items and temps to watch. What im wanting to know is what do I need to watch on my 6.7 I never blew my gaskets or egr on my 6.0 because I knew what to monitor. I ran the 6.0 on an edge evo tow tune pulled a 35' gooseneck with anywhere from 5k- 12k loaded for almost 2yrs before I got sct tunes and studs and everyone says to not tow or tune a 6.0 if you want it to last. I did both so is the 6.7 safe to tow with while tuned ??

I haven't had any issue what so ever towing deleted I think you will be very happy just keep your EGTs under 1350 , keep an eye on your trans temps and take it easy off the line don't get into hard till the torque converter locks up in 3rd if using tow/ haul mode

There is nothing to be concerned with towing with a tuned 6.7.. If you had enough sense to tow fine with your 6.0 then you have absolutely no worries

Boost levels would probably be around 26ish psi and if your Minimaxx is up to date you shouldnt have a problem. Oil probably around 220 I would start paying attention to it. EGT's you dont want to be doing a minute pull at 1300* but for the most part on the tow tune like I said you should be perfectly fine.
