Who makes your favorite CUSTOM TUNE for the SCT?

Just looking for some input from some of yall out there that run the various custom tunes. Also, if any of the tuners themselves happen to look at this thread a PM with costs of different programs or packages and maybe a little info on why I should use their tune. Thanks to all in advance.

P.S. I have searched and gathered some info but now I'm just trying to get it all in one place...after reading all this great info and testimonials from different people everything starts to run together and gets hard to remember and seperate tuner "A's" custom tune from tuner "B's" custom tune and so on! Thanks again!

I am a huge fan of Matt at Gearhead - Street Race Lite tune. Great power, awesome shifting. A fantastic tune for the 6.0, and he has great customer service!

I've run tunes from a lot of different shops, and my favorite is definitely from Direct Injection Performance.

I've got the Looney Wild from Vivian at Quick Tricks, and WOW am I impressed! i just loaded it today (been running Eric's Extreme Race) and man, it has great throttle response, no smoke, and it shifts like an absolute dream!!!! And I've only driven it like 5 mile I imagine that the shifting will only get better as the tranny relearns!

Thanks for all the input so far!

SickStroke- your description sounds great (i like the comparison/experience between the 2)...except I kinda like the blowing smoke when I stomp it. Is it bad for the truck to blow black smoke? I always thought it was just extra fuel burning off. I guess what I should ask...what is the benefit of not blowing smoke?

It will blow smoke in park or neutral if you stomp on it, but other than WOT (which I haven't done yet) it will not smoke. Black smoke is unburnt fuel, and it attracts attention from the local PD Vivian cam write you a Looney+ smoke, but I just think smoke is silly. It just ruins my paint job above my exhaust tip

EDIT: I have studs and an EGR delete, so I have the Looney Wild. The regular Looney is for stock head bolts and EGR.
