Question TW tune selection on 96 F350 SRW zf5 truck

So i have been trying to decide what tunes from Tony to get and cant completely decide. Is sled pull worth having with a manual or not. I have ruled out economy as from what i have read on here its not a good tune and i will just put daily in its place. I will be putting Rosewood stage 2 sticks and the TW chip in at the same time.(After i take the injectors out next weekend and have them upgrade them)

My truck has these upgrades done to it.
3 in. down pipe
6637
I/C
stage 3 clutch
boost, egt, trans temp guages
sct programmer with custom tunes from local shop
CCV

Im runnin Tony's tunes with my current setup. Stock, tow, heavy tow, street, extreme, & hi idle. I mostly use my pickup to pull my horse trailer. I probably run in tow 70% of the time, heavy tow if im buckin a head wind, and stock when I aint pullin. Street and extreme only get used if I need to throw alittle smoke at some of the local cummins cruisers, but they throw a CEL at wide open throttle so I probably need to upgrade my HPOP. Its pretty much just personal opinion I guess. If you get your tunes and don't like em or don't use some of em, just get it reburnt. Ive only ever had Tony's tunes but ive been more than happy with them.

I get better mpg's in street tune than daily or economy. Economy is worthless as stated and the truck can't get out of it's own way if you were to pull out in traffic.

Street is easy on fuel in the lower rpm's and kicks in hard at the top. I like it because it prevents heavy smoking and I have the power when I need it. I'm running stock, daily, economy, street, tow, heavy tow. Thinking about sending it back for high idle and extreme to replace economy and daily. I'm averaging 18 in town and 22-23 on highway with the street tune.

with bigger injectors you can definitely tell a difference between the tunes. with stock injectors not so much

Sorry it took so long to get back on here my computer crashed and i couldnt remember my password so i made a new one but anyways i just didnt know if the sled pull was worth getting with my truck being a five speed cuz it says it holds it in second gear for a automatic truck and i was thinking of maybe pulling at a few local fairs later down the road after efuel and d66. Terry i seen your comment on the detuning for the stock turbo, i am planning on upgrading to a d66 by the end of the summer when cash is available so i was gunna run my stock one for now my truck isnt my daily driver so i figure no big deal there for me i dont think.
