Correct. You're limited to the 80HP tunes. I've got 160cc injectors and a heavy tow tune, I would be very surprised if it had more HP then the stock tune. My truck is a dog in the heavy tow tune, I end up towing in stock tune.

I've pulled roughly 14k in the 65HP daily driver tune without issues. EGTs are managable while still going 65 up hills. It does get smokey with 160cc injectors, which is why I end up with the stock tune.

I've got

Stock
1200rpm idle
40 Heavy tow
65 Daily driver
100 Performance
140 extreme

Ben, is your truck manual of auto?

1:High Idle (no need to have to switch through this position to get to another driving tune so I'd place this one on 1)
2:Stock (cold weather starts and driving around cold)
3:40hp heavy tow (for starting from a stop, getting to freeway speed, climbing hills)
4:80hp light tow (once you are up to freeway speed flip to this for lower shift points and flatland cruising)
5:65hp DD (softer shifts with an auto and has good power but you need to ask for it)
6:80hp Performance (hard shifts, some smoke, throaty exhaust, a little bit of pedal give you lots of power)

Thats because u dont have an intercooler. Stage 1 injectors on a tow tune start out with more fuel but then back off to a stock tune to keep EGTs down. If u add in intercooler and reburn he can give u a little more fuel throughout your tow tune

BEN.... your right, u cant get anymore then 80hp, but in the higher HP tunes like extreme the fueling properties re more aggressive and shifts are harder, id bump up the HP on some of them tunes.... and i know ive said it, but GET RID OF LOAP. And extreme tune does the same thing and give u POWWWA!
