questions about tw reburn

I already have Tonys tunes but i am considering sending it back for a reburn and i have a few questions.

1. What is the differance between heavy tow and tow. Is heavy tow for towing heavier loads or is it a hotter tune that should be used with lighter loads?

2. What do you guys prefer for daily driving? I have the economy tune now but its really a dog and im not sure how much better the mpg really are.

3. Which tune is better/faster race or extreme?

4. Is tony even working right now? I saw on his website something about a medical emergency? I hope he is ok.

5. Any other advice or suggestions.

Thanks

I am wondering some of the same things. I have created the order to send mine back to be reburned. I just want mine changed. My daily tune runs great but it needs to shift different. I would not choose the economy tune ever again, only because its not very powerful and I am like a small child and like my exciting power. The street setting is just awesome and I dont ever use the extreme setting. I decided to get another setting to replace it but I dont remember what it is.

Let me know if you find anything out about tony.

I do get some smoke on daily and the mileage is ok. Its funny I usually drive on street because of the shifting and I get between 10-11 around town, so daily has got to be better I dont see nearly as much smoke in that setting lol.

i believe the heavy tow tune might be for sled pulling keeping the trans from shifting higher then 2nd gear not positive on that one

2. What do you guys prefer for daily driving? I have the economy tune now but its really a dog and im not sure how much better the mpg really are.

i would just run a daily tune

3. Which tune is better/faster race or extreme?

not sure, but i think the extreme tunes are usually just recommended for the track. .

4. Is tony even working right now? I saw on his website something about a medical emergency? I hope he is ok.

The medical emergency you were referring to was his daughter was in the hospitle. i haven't heard an update on that though. He was having someone else write his chips for him. same files so its nothing different.

5. Any other advice or suggestions.

Thanks
ill bite with the information i have.

Running Tony's "Daily" tune I am seeing a 3 mpg bump over stock. I have the econo setting but never use it. I have heard from others that depending on how you drive econo might even be worse than daily b/c is is slower and you end up being heavier on the pedal. Where the daily setting is faster so you are lighter on the pedal.

Tony's daughter had a brain tumor. Last I heard she was recovering but I haven't heard anything lately. Maybe Raul will chime in.

i use my heavy tow all the time here on the farm and never had any problems (unless you think 240* is too hot for tranny )
Daily is what i drive w/ 99% of time, last tank hand calculated to be 18.5 mpg
i'm still working on some pics for you of my bumper, just been busy getting the planter together and stuff
