Rewind 3 years, if I had started with 1023 tunes I would say the medium tow tune. This would be because I would have learned how to drive the truck on those tunes and be just fine.

I really think that if I had started with 1023 and then tried another flavor of tunes like GH, I may have thought that GH sent me the wrong tunes. The truck does well on the 1023 tunes, but it does better for me on the GH tunes only because that is what I am used to.

I hope this makes sense.
It makes sense to me and that would be a common thing with a lot of things in life. Whatever you are used to is what you will stick with unless something throws you off of it. What that tells me is that they might be a little different but both are working well for you.

Here is my quick update on 1023 tunes after towing 2100 to Colorado and back.

Dusty has it figured out. It was nice to set the cruise and go.

I ran the Medium and light tune with my SXE turbo and 35 in tires towing a 10K toy hauler. I ran mostly in 3rd gear at 62 mph the whole trip. EGTs were 900 degrees on the flats and 98% of all hills being pulled were 1100 degrees or lower. Boost while pulling hills were between 15 and 20 pounds. again, all in 3rd gear. It was awesome to be able to accelerate up hills and not back out of them due to EGTs. Dusty's tunes are very predictable and made the trip that much more enjoyable.

There were 3 hills that I pulled in 2nd gear and that was due to the lack of hitting with speed and or 20 mph hair pin turns. One of these hill climbs was at 8K to 10K foot of elevation. Again, no issues.

There were a few times I tried the PHP server tow tunes and they ran 100 degrees hotter. Thank God for the ability to switch tunes on the fly.

When I got to Colorado, I sent a text to Dusty about the successful tow with his tunes. I had a shift question and he jumped on a call with me and I had a tweaked tune in less then an hour.

Like I said, Dusty has it figured out. Great job my friend and thank you!

Akcooper9, I know we have discussed this, but can you tell the other interested FTE'rs what the trucks RPM's were around 62 MPH in 3rd gear? I know where my RPM's are at, but I have stock sized tires on my truck.

As we all know, RPM/engine speed can make a big difference in the way a truck handles a heavy towing load.

Around 2200 RPMs. Highest RPMs I saw were 2400. MPG on this trip was 9.5-10.5 depending on if I was running into the wind.
