    Re: Towing Tune Question

    I would be nervous towing in the 200 hp tune, the EGT can shoot up quickly especially with a load behind you. My gooseneck trailer and dozer have a combined weight of 25,000 lbs and I tow that in the 30 hp tune with no problem and all temps are normal. If I’m hauling the skid steer on the bumper pull trailer which is about 14,000 lbs I normally run the 60 or 90 hp tune and watch the gauges and have no problems.

    2014 Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn CCLB DRW. DRP EGR delete, S&B cold air intake, Flo-Pro 5” stainless turbo back exhaust without muffler, shibby plug kit, MM3 tuner with DRD complete option package.

    Re: Towing Tune Question

    Hello everyone,
    New to the forum but not to diesels and towing. This is my second diesel truck (traded in a 05' Ram Quad cab DRW LB 5.9L), a 2010 Ram crew cab DRW LB Lone-Star Edition 6.7L that I use to pull a 38' tag along with (approx. 8600lbs). I'm in the same boat as Sparks2010. I need better MPGs and less turbo/throttle lag. I've been talking to a shop here in town (Diesel Addiction) about installing an EFI Live with a 5 selector switch and doing a 5" TBE system with all the deletes that come along with it.

    My question is this....Has anyone had any use/problems with EFI live or is there a better tuner out there that I can install myself and not have to pay someone else to do it? Or, is installing a tuner something best left to the pros?

    Paid membership on this site gives you access to DRD and all he offers.

    Trust me, it’s worth the membership.

    I second that. DRD+MM3 is the perfect combination.

    Honest safe running tunes, easily installed yourself not to mention unmatched support by this community.

    I'm glad I found this site.
