Dont need that if you have custom tuning. It can be written right into your tunes

It's a 04 Excursion. I have a tow tune from DP Tuner. Supposed to provide some braking but I still could use a bunch more as I frequently tow through the mountains.

The SpeedBrake is described like cruise control for braking. I like that.

Are you using the tow haul button with this?

I innovatives tow tune with turbo brake. It stops me and my camper pretty much dead in its tracks.

Call DP Tuner and see if your tune has the turbo brake feature or not. If it doesnt order one that does.

How heavy are you towing?

I told Jody I wanted that for sure when I contacted him originally.

I have a 30 foot TT that weighs in at about 10K so combined we are 18K. I do the Rockies a few times a year plus the Mex 1 down the Baja.
