Towing with H&S

So I have my DPF deleted, and my H&S mini installed, I have not towed my trailer (8-10 000 lb) with my new 2008 super duty yet. What setting should the H&S be set at?

I would start at highest setting and watch u gauges and adjust settings from there for best setting not keeping hight EGT
Each load will very with weight and the setting u will use
Good luck.

So there is no worry in breaking anything by towing on too high of a power setting?

Not as long as u watching your EGT staying below 1250 deg for any more than 15 sec
You will start to melt pistons and cause valves to weld to seats
