Id be good with either one. I personally plan on usin ID tunes, but that's because they're so close to me. But, honestly I 'd go either way.

Don't overlook Matt at Gearhead. His tunes are very solid and he has a bunch of happy campers running his Street Race Light tune.

I'm struggling with all the abbreviations. whos "RCD's" "ID" "Have botg"
i was thinking of going with stealth or in innovative for a sct tuner. I will be looking for mileage for the drive to work (50 mile round trip) weekends haul 4 horse around
I'm in north west PA. right now I'm stock. will be putting a 4" turbo back exhaust next week and new BFG t/a ko on this week
just a note scarred to death of going to hot and doing some thing big to my daily driver. 05 with 40,000 miles

RCD=River City Diesel
ID=Innovative Diesel
Botg=fumble fingers=Both

With the SCT you can change tunes as you need to. It takes less than 2 minutes to change your tune. So you can have a nice street tune for when you are not towing and a good tow tune for when you are and change back and forth as you need to.

Now for the good news. At some point you're probably going to need head gaskets anyway so I'd try and get to it while you still have a warranty, and have them put ARP studs while they're at it. Then you shouldn't have to worry about it.
