Which programmer to buy?

Hi guys. I would like to get some input from you more experienced tuners on here. I have an 05 f-350 that is completely stock except for the fact that I had the head gaskets replaced, new ARP studs, EGR and Oil cooler replaced. I removed the Catalytic converter. Stock exhaust. I had all the known engine problems fixed. I use my truck every day and now I want more power. What programmer do you guys recommend? I am looking for a simple plug in, download the tune and done. I want to keep it simple as possible. Can you guys give me some of your recommendations? Thanks.

SCT is the only way to go. I would install gauges first.

SCT is the hands down favorite for the 6.0.

So if I were to jump online and buy a tuner, which SCT should I get? I see they make different ones. I want one that I can buy , get it delivered, and install it on my truck.

I am not looking to push the truck to make the absolute most horsepower possible. I just want to pick up some extra horsepower and torque without having to worry about high EGT's and any other problems.
