Who produces the best tunes for SCT and why you like them!!

OK, I am in the market for a couple good high power tunes for MPG and Fun, along with a great tow tune that can pull and shift like it's supposed to. Please post what tune you have, who it is from, and why you like it.

I have ran Innovatives X Street, Cale's 140hp, and am currently running Matt's SRL (street race light) All three on a stock motor with stock head bolts.

I personally prefer Matts SRL. All three make comparable power (seat of pants feel) Cale's shifting is tops with Matts a close second and Innovative close third. I like Matts tune because it feels a little stronger pulling through the RPMs and the smoke cleans up best of all three on the top end

heres my from my experience. Every truck is different though

erics x-street runs smoothest and shifts best on my truck what i run now

dj newest tune looney tune but i think its wrong name. Ran just as good maybe even faster than x-street. Didnt like the the shift and how hard it started in cold weather

matts-srl loved the easy drive pedel, something just didnt seem right when on my truck. Hard to discribe sorry.

The last tune i tried was elite insanity. Power was ok, start up was real hard and whistled louder than normal untill the truck was to normal operating temps.

I do believe all the tunes could have been worked on to get everything right. Hopes this helps its just my .02 cents

Update

I should have added more info. I have a 05 F250 CC 4X4 with the EGR delete, 4" exhaust from the turbo back, head studs, a full set of pilar guages, and a SCT tuner currently running the canned high hp tune. I am looking to turn up the mpg and fun factor along with a tune that I'll plan on using to drag around the horses, camper, boat, or whatever with out running my EGT's out the roof.

I am having the same exact problems as you, and Vivian can't see to figure it out. And I'm looking for a little firmer shifting, as hers will slip when my transmission is real cold. I'm bout to get Extreme Race, Extreme Street, and Tow from Eric, as I think he knows what's best for these trucks.
