Best Tunes?

Hey guys I know alot of you have mikes tunes and was wondering what are the best ones for fuel,towing, and performance. I have a 2004 f-350 v-10
The most I pull is around 10,000lbs but not to often. mostly my bobcat and that's around 5,000lbs
I've heard the 93 tow is the best all around but hard to say I havent bought mine yet. What does everybody have and what do they like the best?

Havent got to use my tow tune yet,but have been running the economy tune for daily driving. In this cold winter air I have been getting about 10mpg stop and go driving,compared to last year getting about 8. So i feel in the warmer months I will see a better gain. Cant wait to try the tow tune though!

I believe Mike gives you three tunes to choose from, and even if those three aren't what you want, he'll customize them to your liking.

I have run the 87 towing performance, the 89 towing performance and the 87 economy tune.
The economy tune seemed to struggle on hills and passing on the highway. The 89 tune was decent but didn't it netted less mpg then the 87 towing performance tune.. I have not driven the 91 or 93 tunes so I can't comment on those.
I do love the overall improvement the tunes have made, the response is night and day!
