New SCT and a horse trailer

Wow, just installed my SCT tuned by Eric yesterday and pulled the horse trailer to the show this AM. The power and shifts are amazing. It is like driving a new truck. Plus I got 12.3 mpg compared to 10-10.5 as before. Can't wait to get home and unhook and load the street tune.

Those are great results! I hope you have gauges cause things can get ugly fast when you are towing.

adding just a tow tune make the truck seem totally different. the race tune though is unreal. tunning only makes them run better. i saw lower egts running a tow tune and the truck did not work as hard pulling the load. stock tuning ran hotter and was noticably less powerful.

Running 79mph on I95 for about 45 miles the lie-o-meter showed 15.3 mpg. This is with 35 " MTs and my speedo is off about 10%. I got my mph from GPS. Show I figure I was getting a little better than 16 mpg. When I had my stock tires and no tune I could get 18mpg running this speed. I bet that woul dbe close to 20 with the tune.
