Thanks. Not really super helpful but i appreciate it. I had my old wagon with the same drive train loaded to the hilt plenty of times and it didn't really notice, when we're talking about towing another 3500 + pounds of car,dolly,tools,spares and all that is where I'm wondering. It's got a small receiver rated for 3500 so I'll probably load it up and take it for a drive late at night with less traffic to deal with and run it out on 495 up over a fairly steep bridge nearby to see. These autos are huge power sucking vampires though so it's not really a fair comparison. Anybody got power improvements for the 617? Bigger turbo? The horrible lag will be easier to deal with with a manual trans.
