SCT Tow Tune Question

Need to get some info about the SCT X3 canned tunes. Recently had egr deleted and all 8 injectors replaced. I was tired of looking at the CEL so decided to get an SCT to shut it off. I was running the street tune for a few weeks, and didn't drive the truck hard at all, but in a matter of a few weeks i wound up with a cracked flex plate. I replaced the flex plate, and decided to replace the torque converter as well, and I'm glad I did, because I noticed my rear main seal was leaking. Replaced that too. I tuned the truck again today, I put it on the 50hp tow tune, as I will be doing some towing this weekend. I never tried the tow tune before, but I like the way it runs even empty.

My question is what exactly does the 50hp tow tune do vs the 100hp street tune, and is the tow tune safe for daily driving?

Yea, I always forget and leave my truck on the street tune when I am loaded. I just dont kill it! I only used my custom tow tune once. I dont see why you couldnt leave it on?
