Froggy Tow Tunes?

So Who is running the Frogs Tow tune. Are there different versions, and does it have the downshift to 1st on decel. ? I dont really care for the turbo braking stuff. Feedback?

Just tell him what you want and he will build it. I like mine.

I have performance tune from Doug, because I don't tow over 8K most of the time, but I love my Tow/Haul...its aggresive, and downshifts hard. I love it when I'm towing...

Doug (gogodiesel.com) just re-tuned me lastnight for my new tires
i havent run the actual tow program but he added a neat feature to my file : if i hit my tow/haul button it starts to down shift when i let off the pedal until the truck reaches about 20mph played with it alittle lastnight on the way home

The tow file is top notch!:Thumbup:
Doug and I spent a number of months tweaking it..
It is hard core, some find it a little harsh. Put 10k behind your truck or a few thousand lbs. in the box and you will love it!

You can use it to slow the truck with out any weight, just stay off the brakes and LET THE TRUCK SLOW IT'S SELF DOWN.

It also shines in stop and go traffic jams. Put it in t/h and it acts like a manual without having to push a clutch, plan your spacing right and you rarely have to touch the brakes!:Thumbup:

This is exactly why I want it, but have had no luck the last couple of weeks via phone or PM.:shrug:

How are y'all getting in touch with him?

I have ran a tow file that he sent me. I was one that thought it was a bit harsh (last down shift). Power seamed about stock too me but the down shifting with Tow/Haul was pretty neat. FYI... I tried this empty and with an 18' trailer with old 70's Chevy loaded. Just be patient with the frog as he is very busy.

I remember the old programming that gave me the dshift to 1st, and want that back. I dont use t/h all the time, but want to be able to hit it when I want to slow down, and not fry the brakes. I think I will get in touch with Doug. OH, and thanks for the replies! :Thumbup:
