Yeah they get the added power mainly by advancing the timing, which under heavy load will detonate. You'd benefit greatly from the tow tune though, if you tow/haul that often. The manufacturers of the tuners warn you greatly about not towing/hauling in the performance modes. The tow tune is great, I tried it for about a week or two, I believe they actually retard the timing to allow heavy loads without detonation. You can really tell there is more power down low, and the adjusted shift schedule is great. I hardly ever tow/haul, so it just isn't for me, if I'm filling up with 93 I want to get all the performance I can, but if I towed/hauled often I'd definitely run the tow tune.
