help me pick my TW tunes.

hey guys. im getting ready to order a TW chip and i need some advice on tunes. heres what im thinking

1 stock just to have a stock setting
2 hi idle for those cold winter mornings
3 economy to use most of the time for better mpg's
4 heavy tow when im pulling my 5th wheel
5 extreme when i wanna smoke a civic
6 smoke when i wanna smoke out a civic

so does this sould like a good combo?

I would also suggest getting something else in place of stock. You'll never use it. And if you want stock (dont know why you would) just pull the chip. Mine has stock and i have never used it. The only time its ever been in that setting is just for comparison of how crappy it used to be.

I agree with Jake. Don't get stck. If you want stock (which you won't)just unplug the chip. I would not get daily either.

I never use daily, I always just run econ even in town. Of course my daily tune isn't quite right. How does daily compare to economy?
