250 Tune towing

Does anyone on here tow there bass boat (20ft nitro) to the lake with the 250 tune? I just installed the 250, been running the 210 and now I want to see if the mileage will be better with the higher horse tune.

I tow trailers that are bigger and heavier than a bass boat with my 250 tune all the time. Works great! The mileage will be better with your 250 over your 210.

Thanks for the reply. Is there anything that I need to look out for when towing with the 250 tune. I was told by spartan that there are no built in safety features for the 250 tune but I really don't know what that means. Thanks again. Matt

all you need to do is watch your egt's. If they get to hot then tune it down.
