Any good SCT Street tunes good for towing

Does anybody write a good Street tune good for towing. I tow an 8000# trailer, and after 86,000 miles, my truck is getting its 2nd replacement HG w/ARP's. My ID tow tune seems lame, with lame performance and poor fuel economy. But my street tune tends to over boost up long grades(30-34 psi).

We have a 50rwhp Tow Mild for pulling heavy, which we usually use for our braking file.

The Tow Agg is a 65rwhp Tow program. It pulls great, it's safe, and we can add braking.

I have an 80rwhp Tow for trucks with studs. I wouldn't go much beyond that in power, since the intention of a tow program is to be as safe as possible.

By nature, a tow will not get the mileage of a high power tune. The injection pressure and timing are much lower, which in turn decreases power, add's safety, and loses some efficiency(mileage). It's all a balance.
