Tow/haul mode with tow tune?

Tried searching but could not easily find a definitive answer. Do you still use the tow/haul mode button when using a custom tow tune (Towbrake from Innovative)?? Thanks.

Yes. Eric says that the turbo brake will work better with the T/H mode on

Yes. Shift points are not affected that much by the tow tune. I use the tow tune as my daily tune. Good power and no smoke. has as much power as eric's street tue and doesn't draw a ton of attention.

I haven't install the tune yet, just running on their street tune, but when I ordered my tunes, Innovative Diesel (Eric) explained that I can use the tow tune in normal street driving without the 'tow' button activated as well.

I am in the market for some new tunes and am considering the turbo braking.....do you guys that have it think it is a good choice?

Does it affect a non studded engine in any way?
