Need some tune advice!

I am getting ready to order an SCT tuner. I have a 06 that is mostly stock with 4" turbo back and gauges. I am looking for a little advice/opinion on where to get tunes and what to get for tunes. Sorry but there is so much information on here that it is tough to get through it all and get the answers to my questions. Thanks for your help!

Matt and Eric are the two names you hear the most but I am hearing a lot about Matts SRL tune. Is there any other tunes by Matt that are worth having?

I am looking to get a sct from Matt but dont know any way to get ahold of him, can somebody pm me a way of getting ahold of him please? I am also wondering, what does the tow tune change because other things that I have read say to tow with the stock setting. I am also wondering if there is anybody that runs Matts street tune and if it is worth getting or not. Sorry for all the newb questions but I cannot find the answers to these questions, thanks!
