I used to use the Preadator on my LLY and it was a good tune for towing. It also gave me the ability to check & reset codes.

Right now we are running EFI Live in both trucks

I have been towing alot recently & have the Pred. I use 40 for heavy loads & 65 for light. The Pred. probably isn't the best tuner to use with towing cause its heavy on the fuel & can get some real high EGTS.
If you want something for a little more power when towing & not for performance, get a Edge EZ.

I have heard about the predator that it can give you really high EGT's

Water Injection for towing is not practical IMHO unless yu plan to carry large amounts of water.

My preference for "off the shelf" tuning for the LB7 is Edge or VA. I have some notes on my site under Dmax Performance...
