New tunning wife is going to kill me!!!!

Well just got back into this diesel thing and started off wrong it seems. I should have known since I did own a 03 Mustang GT and had the Xcal 2 for it. But leave it up to me and listen to my brother of which owns a chevy. He said buy the PPE for your truck and well I did. No stories yet but not comfortable at all running it. Bought it from a guy off of here.

Now I want to end my worries and just buy the SCT Xcal 3. ( That is where my wife is going to kill me )

My truck is equipped with a Spearco Intercooler and stock exhaust with no kitty or muffler. Plenty thanx to the friend at the muffler shop. So please let me know which tunes to get. Do not want to have to get new head studs done just yet. So please let me know who or what to get please......

I've got an xcal3 with tunes from DP Tuner on it. I run the econo tune mostly. I've always had good luck with DP. There are others too, I'm sure someone else will chime in.
