Custom Tow "De-Tune"??

Been thinking about playing it safe when it comes to our motors and towing. I know most guys put their tunes on stock when towing but has anyone ever tried a "de-tune" tow tune that gives out less power and torque (egr shutdown also) similar to the chassis cab variants? I know international originally designed the vt365 for only 260hp range, so what are ya'll opinions on this?

I'm not sure I understand you. I believe mostof us with tuners use a tow tune. I pull a 17, 000lb trailor with a exhaust brake tow tune written by Vivian over at quick tricks.

Stock power is plenty safe to tow with, there is absolutely no reason to de-tune your truck for reliability. If you are worried then I wouldn't run a tuner when towing or run a trans only tune that would actually help your trans, not hinder it.

I'm not sure that less power equals longevity. At least not with these new type diesels. If I dont run the pi$$ oit of mine that's when stuff starts breaking or sticking.

cab and chassis trucks are detuned but they're also geared better from the factory. Same with econolines. You could detune but you're gonna hate it with 3.73s or even 4.10s
