I'm pretty sure the standard answer will be the SCT from any of the vendors.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Sct or edge evo., I use the edge and Bill at Power Hungry Performance has good tow tunes he has a 25hp, and a 40hp. I personally would not tow with more than 40 extra Hp

How much weight is he towing?? If it's over about 10K, he needs to either stud it or forget using any power adder for towing.... Below that, he might be ok...

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
