What DP tunes should I get?

I'm going to be sending my ECM and my 6 position chip to Jody@Dp tuner in a couple of days. Sending the ECM in so I can get rid of the crappy e99 shifting strategy. My only mods are t500, exhaust, and air intake. My gauges should be here next week. The truck pulls a 10k trailer most weekends. So what tunes should I get?

I guess its all up to user preference, I ordered my DP tuner this week and bought stock, 80 tow, 80 econo,120 race. Being an early 99 you should have forged rods, and may be able to make use of the 140 extreme. My 90cc singles probably will fall on their face with my 120 race tune.

Other popular tunes people choose are 40 or 60 tow depending on load weight, high idle, drive through "whisper" tune (I believe its of more use on single shots) etc. I say read through the list and figure out what suits your fancy

I had the 80e and switched it for the 60e. I like the 60e way better for just cruisin around. No smoke, good power.

I was thinking stock, high idle, 40e, 60e, 80t, and 140 race. Still not sure though.

Seems silly to waste time and space using all those 20hp incremental positions...

I'd do something like stock, hi idle, whisper idle, tow mode, and a hot setting.

I tend to agree, only thing I would add is the eco tune because my hot tun shifts way to agressive for daily driving

The 80 econ is great, your going to be in that most of the time, the 60 Tow will be good for what your pulling, and you know when your in the tow tune, it really makes it nice.
