raceMe tuner questions

Guys,
for best mileage while towing, should I use sw-2 towing and if so, timing 1, 2, 3, 4, or default? would like to have a setting that gives best mpg for towing and not towing. thanks

Depends on how heavy you tow. I would do either sw2 or even sw1 if you tow heavy. Always run the default timing on any raceme tune you use.

Like vb712 said keep the timing on default. The power setting you can run depends. Are you using a EGT gauge? The power setting will depend on what the load is you are towing.

Default timing on is the odd numbers correct?

To use the default timing level on any software level you simply press 0 in the Injection Timing screen.

It wouldn't hurt to monitor EGT's. I am always a big fan of a EGT gauge (or monitor) if towing or running higher hp levels.

Im confused. Im using the RaceMe pro. I thought the odd numbers were with timing added and the even number with no timing added.

Am I not reading or understanding this correctly?

You are correct. The odd numbers have additional timing predetermined by the manufacturer and the even have no timing which is great for stacking a module with the tuner. You can still adjust timing to your liking on any setting.

Always a good idea when tuned and towing to monitor EGT's.

so why default timing instead of 2? it seems that my truck runs smoother, not necessarily better mpg, but smoother than on default as if they were different. any insight is appreciated. thanks
