Got my CTS2 PRO with some small GH tunes today... I'll be hooking up to the camper this weekend so we'll see if it throws anything and I'll be able to record it if so.

As for delta's, I partially understand/agree with what you say, doesn't seem unreasonable for one temp to jump up a bit during a big haul, but the important thing to me is how the truck settles/cools down once this large grade is done. So far I haven't seen over 225*F EOT on a decent grade, but it's by no means out west terrain. We'll see what she does! I'm excited about the tunes!

You'll enjoy the bump in power. I only use the tow tune and its a noticeable gain over stock.

Got it! Heavy tow is dropped in and running good, I can already tell the difference in line pressure just milling around town. Hooking to the 5er tomorrow, we'll see how she does!

Yes sir, shifting is really noticeable.

Bumping this back up, even though it's boring.

With Matt's Tow tune the truck did great. No wrenches, no limp mode, no nothin. We rolled on at 75 pretty strong. Mileage was up a hair, temps we're getting up there but still within reason.

I'll flush the cooler when I get a chance, are there any good write ups on this?

One other question. If I plan to go in and do nick nack stuff to it this winter, should I spend any time or money on a cross over fuel line? Help or worth anything? also any reasonably priced kits out there?

I've never heard of a cross over fuel line? I've seen regulated fuel systems.

Edit:
There's good stuff found on ficmrepair.com

Here's the flush http://www.ficmrepair.com/pdf/Powers...Flush_v1-0.pdf

I saw the most mpgs improvements towing. As to flushing. There is a lot of different ways, reasons and ideas on the subject. Ill let you make your mind up on which direction you want to go. As far as im aware there is a ipr piece that reroutes the water right after the cooler to which a filter setup could be used it could have also be used to back flush the cooler. There is also a device fairly similar from fix your 6 that i have that puts a garden hose attachment on top of the cooler at the inspection cover. It does make the back flush easier i will admit but has not to date saved my oil cooler. Although it didnt save my oil cooler i can pull the turbo piping on the passenger side and have it hooked up for a flush in probably 15mins or less. So it is and could be useful.

Think I'll give it a shot.. I mean shouldn't/couldn't hurt right? My temps are good enough, but perhaps a flush will help them just a bit.
