best towing tuners

Hey guys, I tow 9000 pounds every day with my 95 Stroker, kinda wanting to put a little more zip to its step without harming the tranny or engine. 2wd auto 3.55 has mods

2004 f250 4x4
Straight pipe...
Thats all...
Boring, right?
Stay tuned!!

depends on how much $$$ you are wanting to spend.

What mods do you have currently?
off the top of my head: intake (6637), exhaust, get tunes built for your truck/mods, maybe a shift kit?

4.10 gears would help you out a ton, that alone would be a big improvement

We can get you setup with a chip and some tunes, but I would recommend a gear swap as well. It will help significantly.

I would also recommend other supporting mods such as intake, exhaust, and gauges if you don't already have them.

Check out all of our tuning products HERE.

Let me know if you have any questions. I would be happy to help you out.

HP can makeup for gears but 4.10's are the way to go.
Get the basics..intake, exhaust and guages, Trans cooler and then a TS chip..TW has a great heavy tow tune.

We have everything for a OBS..PM me if I can help.

I was wondering about the same thing?
I have a 96 7.3 stoker with 4.10 gears.
intake and straight pipe. Was thinking
about a little extra when I pull my camper
or tow my Jeep to off road parks....
Which tuner would be best?
This is not my daily driver.

That's the kind of question that gets bias results, I love my tony tunes, but dp, swamps, php, and all of the like have great tunes as well, so pick your poison and you won't regret it either way

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been on in a while. I have an intake, downpipe, exhaust, banks transcommand, tranny cooler, gauges, and a 25hp pcm from the previous owner, wanting to get rid of that.... As it is, the truck is a complete monster and even with a trailer, that thing hauls ***, so I'm not looking for a huge amount of speed increase, mainly just a little more power behind itfor going up the hills. This truck is also my interstate road trip truck and I like running 72 at 2100rpm, it does save on the fuel a little so I don't rwallly want to give that up, what are your suggestions now that you know the stats?
