Thumbs up SCT Custom tuning related!! Fill me in guys

Here is the deal, I have a sct x3 and a stock truck except for the 4" strait pipe. I only drive to and from work about 30 miles each way, and I also tow a bass boat ALOT. I am interested in the custom tunes from where ever, but don't know if I can run them due to being basically a stock truck. But I would prefer a custom tune to properly fit the tranny and everything but not kill anything on the truck. I also would like a little more low range grunt, none of the canned tunes seem to kick in until about 2k rpms.

So my question is where should I look to get a custom tune and which one???

Go with either Eric at Innovative or Matt at Gearhead Automotive performance for your custom files.

I have tunes from these two and many others.

Do you have gauges in the truck

As far as Erics tunes go I have his extreme tow with brake, Extreme street and Extreme Race.

As far as Matts tunes go I have his Tow Pig and Street Race Lite tunes.

As far as Daily driving I switch between extreme st and SRL

I like the SRL (Street Race Light) tune form Matt at gearhead. My truck is completely stock except for gauges and i love this tune. The tranny tuning is the best IMO. I have not had Eric's tunes to compare to though.
