I have a Hypertech E-Con that I have installed last year. I also use a ScanGaugeII that indicates all the engine parameters except the Exhaust Temp that I keep track with a Gauge. I pull a 12000 Lbs Trailer. The Power gain is like this, When stock the Torque goes to 100% at every hill while I have the overdrive on at 60MPH. With the Program set to A, I can make the same hill at 70% torque and still have up to 100% choice on the accelarator. I usually let it go to 90% now, and can sometimes gain speed in the hill. The Temperature on my Exhaust hardly goes up more then normal. In fact I never had to pull of the trottle back, because of exhaust overheating.
Without the trailer I find that the setting on A or B give me a much better MPG increase at higher speeds then Stock. When I put my truck back to stock I feel all kinds of Engine noises and vibration.
I would never leave with the truck stock while hauling my trailer. I have a Standard Transmission and I do the shifting myself. I would recommend a Programmer that also controls shifting, if an automatic is being used.
