when i used to tow my toy around (tube buggy on 44s and 1 ton running gear) on my 18ft dovetail trailor i used the 80e setting. didn't know about the 80t when i order my chip from jody. the 60 is fine but didn't have enough grunt and the 100 and up just heated up the tranny too much and on the hills was too hard to control the EGTs.

I tow my 8k camper with the 80t with no problems. It's got plenty of power clear across the rpm band. I also tow in the 140 extreme setting with no problems either but I have a manual tranny.

I tow up to 10,000 lbs on the 60T with no problem. On lighter loads, I tow on my 80E. It runs a little hotter, but handles the smaller loads fine.
