Question Best tuner for '05 6.0 powerstroke?

I'm new to the forum. I'm trying to figure out how to post and use everything. I have an 2005 6.0 and would like to know what would be the best tuner to get better fuel mileage and a little more power. It is basically stock. Straight pipe with 285's. First diesel also. Were is the best place to purchase the tuner from? Thanks for any help.

Which programmer?



Also, do your homework on the tunes. Personally, I would go with Matt's SRL.
