What is the best setting for all around driving on a Ford 5.4. Stock, towing, trans only or Extreme? What do I gain on the stock setting?

With the Edge Evolution Programmer for Ford Triton V8, item # EP15051, for the 2004 - 2008 Ford F-150 4.6 and 5.4 Liter Triton V8, the best setting for all around driving when you are not towing is the Tow Performance Program, in my opinion. This setting provides the advantages of the transmission program along with increased fuel economy and power, due to modification of ignition timing and fuel injection strategies. This setting also allows you to keep running 87 octane fuel.
The Evolution Programmer does not provide any gains for the Ford Triton V8 when the stock program is selected. The engine should be returned to stock when returning your vehicle to a service center
or emissions check station.
I have provided a link to the instructions for this programmer below.
