Towing
« on: November 03, 2013, 11:56:36 PM »
Anyone with a tune tow anything? I am sure it did fine as they make power all the way through the RPM but curious. Anyone with the H R springs or lowered ever tow anything?

I tow frequently.  I am about as low as you can go.. 27" diameter tires and H & R springs.  I do have a receiver that raises my ball several inches. 

You can add air bags to rear springs if you choose.

I tow, but have a really light trailer, and a sport bike. So its probably less weight than having a couple friends in the car. lol

I posted a pix here about a month ago... looked for pix when I was posting and I couldn't find it in photobucket.  Perhaps someone else can point out where it is.  It is a pix of my Flex towing our 22 ft  yellow/white Ebbtide w/ built 502.  Weighs around 4.500 lb with trailer and fuel.  Pulls easily.  Think I could do an 8 sec  0-60!

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!
