My truck is mainly a tow pig, 7000# tag or 18000 fiver.
Way down to do the mods (150 Miles) - 11.7 Unloaded (I do have a tool box and fuel cell in the bed)
Way back from the mods - 14.9. Unloaded
Drove 60-65, it is a 55 MPH highway.
Towing went from 6.5-7 to the beach to 9.5-10. Mountians, 4-7% grades, etc.
4.88's you have to drive slower to get the MPG.
I would say it made a difference.
I would just do a tuner and delete. Dont worry about the EGR right now.
I have Innovative (Eric) and it is good. I would get his tuner and load the tow tune and not worry. I had his tuning on my 6.0 also, he is good, great on the tranny tuning.
The truck will run cooler on everything.
Stock EGT's while towing would blip into 1400 when in regen, then settle around 1320 or so.
Now (at least in the winter) I have to try to get the EGT's to 1250 while towing, it will get that high up long steep grades with my foot in it.
Change oil 5000 or less, the fuel filters at 10,000 or less and drive it.
