Can i add more power towing

my 04 has exhaust, s&b intake, blue spring, superchips flashpaq, innovatives mild ficm flash, my oil temp gets up to 230 max while towing @ 75 for about an hour, trans temp doesn't go above 162, egt doesn't see much over 1100 anytime maybe 1200 for a second. Now i'm doing the egr delete so some temps may be lower so question is if these numbers are good is there any reason i can't start towing with stage 3 (100HP) instead of 2 (50HP). oh my normal load is 8-9k.

How deep are your pockets if you have a good set of gauges then give it a try but be ready for for HG's down the road. I pull a 14k 5er and highest that I have seen was ECT 218* EOT 228* outside temp 90*+ up a 7% grade over 6 miles long and my fan come on around 212-214* and my TT runs around 165* and EGT 1200* on the flats it runs around 1000*

Re: Can i add more power towing

I towed 5k all over with my old max energy set on 3, never had any problems, even going over the rockies @80, ingnorance was bliss, withh what I know now I would not do it again. On flatland I would do it though, but who needs extra power on the flats?

Re: Can i add more power towing

may just be time to get a sct, my flashpaq just never ran like my 1705 tuner. from what i understand the 1705 had more sct tunning in it and after they split superchips just wasn't same. that with the ficm flash may be just the little extra i'm looking for and safe.
