6.0 doesn't use a chip. You use a flash device like an SCT X3 to install the tune directly into the PCM via the OBD II port. There are a whole lot of tuners writing SCT tunes for the Powerstroke. Eric at Innovative Diesel and Matt at Gearhead Automotive Performance are both pretty popular around here but there are lots of others.

Yea, 6.0's require programming.

SCT, Innovative, Gearhead, and plenty more that I cant think of at the moment.

Typical cummins owner.

There's your answer for that. As far as best custom tunes, only you can make that decision. I use Eric at Innovative Diesel and I'm very happy. Haven't tried tunes from anybody else.......
