Well I've towed ~4,000lb with my 4.7L with 3.55 gearing on the 87 perf tune with 89 octane at about 65-70mph. I think it would pull a little better with the actual tow tune with that much weight, but I didn't have any issues. I averaged 12mpg from orlando to deal's gap in north carolina and back. I don't like the tow tune though because you have to use 91 octane, and the mpg just doesn't seem to be good. As a comparison, I get about 20mpg pretty easy at 70mph unloaded.
