I was referring to when he will be towing. When not towing I am sure he will stomping on the fun pedal.

update

Hello friends,
I thought to offer an update on this subject.

I mentioned that I wanted to see how my Black Bear Performance tune did before throwing the switch on the Maggie.

Well - after towing the 5er for the first time after the tune, I'm quite pleased with the increased performance. I am now able to accelerate while towing up modest grades at highway speeds (65mph) in overdrive, which was not the case before. Not bad for a 2500HD 6L gasser pulling a 12,000# 5er IMO. Money well spent on the tune me thinks.

I can always go with the Maggie in the future, but for now I'm running the Heavy Chevy as is.

Thanks again for all of the feedback and encouragement.

Ground pounding, stump pulling, dependable low RPM raw torque, ease of mind towing will not be sucessfully accomplished long term by a huffed up gasser ... at least in the 12,000+ towing arena. To each his own on fuel choices for TV's ... I wonder why over the road truckers always go diesel?????????????

Thanks Brakeman
Yes, I could 'have' done that with a diesel, but I didn't. Cool huh?

I just can't bite it here ... diesels run way cooler than gassers any day of the week. With a huffed up gasser you'll aways be combatting heat buildup and may eventually have to go to a larger radiator to get rid of that heat. Like you said ... it's your thing, but for the higher weight towing diesel crowd .... we're not impressed as we know the long term outcome despite the awesome look of a huffer atop your engine.
