what settings on new chip for towing
I talked to Jody and he recommended
40hp tow - for the wife who can not watch the pyro and drive
80 tow - for me
80 econo - for running around town
120 for fun
with the mods I have (tymar, zoodad, BB turbo 4" dp and exhaust, and my new Spearco CAC) I wondered if I could tow in the 100 HP setting and keep the EGT in control. I can not afford any more tunes, 4 is enough maybe I should switch the 80 econo to a 100. After I thought about it econo is kinda crazy with a 11,400 lbs truck with 4.88 gears.
He isnt shipping till early August so I have some time to think about it
