Anyone with a TW chip

So I am with this paycheck probly gonna buy a TW chip, Ive been told that you have to have stock as one of your settings to let the motor and oil warm up before you can change to any settings is that true?

And also what are people seeing for mileage in economy setting?

I was thinking of getting daily, extreme, economy, and tow. Do you guys know if later I decide to change a position or add one if they can do that or not?

and is extreme pretty hard on the motor?

So I would be better off going heavy tow instead of just tow?
Also would you recommend street or extreme?

The reason I got my economy tune is because of my stage I's... all other settings that are higher than economy smoke like no other and I dont want to go around smoking the road out all the time. The economy setting, allows me to have a significant gain over stock without alot of smoke. It does have some smoke but not crazy like, just how I like it. And when Im feeling crazy and the road is clear of all traffic I will switch over to street or extreme and hammer down. Very intense gains over stock, just have to use them wisely and kindly.
