I am running the tune. I have not pulled a sled but for the fun of it I pulled my gooseneck (almost 8000 lbs empty) with it and was wild. Very hard pulling, I loved where the shifts were and the smoke was ridicules. I mean that, his smoke tune has nothing on his sled pull tune.

Ya I drive in it without a load all the time. You have to be very gental on the throtle so as not to make a scene but its fun to drive on.

Extream is a good one too. THe sled pull I cant run all the time just because one it smokes too much and 2 I think it is what is eating my u-joints.

The daily tune is the best all around. I leave it on this most of the time. Economy tune is not making much difference I dont think and the truck feels slower anyway.

sled pull is a strong tune and at least on mine it has no rpm limiter so watch you tach if you are on the track with it and locked in a gear you can over rev a stock engine pretty fast without valve train mods
