pulling in 140aggresive

i just pulled my buds titan and i was pulling in 80eco. i did not like the way it pulled at all so i kicked it into 140 and it pulls alot better and shifts alittle more firmer.(if thats a word) anyway egts were about the same, and it didnt throw any overboost codes. is it safe to tow like that. for christmas im getting tow tunes but i figured id ask.

That's how I do it

Seriously though these past 30 degree mornings I've fired up in "stock" and switched to the daily driver tune which is like the 120 performance. I tow in that and as long as I'm dainty w/ the throttle... it's all good.

Re: pulling in 140aggresive

hmmm. I might be getting my DP a little sooner than. I was going to end up getting 4 tunes, needed to wait for the extra $100. But if i can get away with an 80eco and 140 i might have me an early christmas present

Re: pulling in 140aggresive

When you guys kept it on highest setting (guessing between 120-140) how was your mileage compared to economy setting when your unloaded?

Re: pulling in 140aggresive

isn't there a milder tow tune available from Jody? Then you can flog it and not worry....
