More power for a 2017 5500 C&C?

My friend just bought a 2017 5500 Cab and Chassis. He needs more power to tow a heavy trailer. Will a tuner do the job or does he need to delete the truck and get a tuner? Any recommendations?

He can have a non-derated, non-c&c truck file flashed via efi live. Just contact any tuner and they should be able to help.

Thank you for the quick answer. I will give some of the guys a call for tuner and a tune.

My 5500 with the deck and picker is never less than 16500lbs felt like a race car when I deleted it. I used RaceMe Ultra and straight piped which is quieter than you would think. I used the 30hp tune with stock spool and rail pressure. It is a 2015 with the 4:88's

Thanks for the input! I called Anarchy Diesel and they said Efi live doesn't have a tune for a 2017 cab and chassis. They also said I would need to get a Bully dog to unlock the computer first. I called Bully dog and they said they don't have anything for a 2017 cab and chassis either. So my friend will have to wait until they have a tune before going any further.

You don't want a cab a chassis tune though.

My question was for KRS
Exited the enhanced mode, I can see the digs now.
How does the tune work for you with the aisin?
