Who writes best tunes for studded trucks

I've tried ID tunes (SCT) on stock studs and like them. But wanted to find out who writes the best tunes for studded trucks.

That is a matter of personal preference and what your truck likes.

I've tried Vivian's and Innovative's high power tunes, and I seem to like the Xtreme Street the best. The only thing I think could compare would be Matt's SRL++. I plan on getting that once I get my fuel pressure gauge.

Yep, you sure can (assuming your fuel pump is in good health). I see you have both a fuel pressure and the updated FPR, so you should be good to go. Just keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't drop below 45 PSI.

the highest HP 6.o is tuned by innovative. i have a custom x-street tune for my truck that is on point. tunes for studded trucks are not that much different IMO it just means that your head gaskets shouldn't blow as easily as stock and the oem tty bolt. surely they can make adjustments (timing/fuel) that could increase cylinder pressure to make more power and boost but transmission tuning along with that is very important. just my thoughtssssss

Matt's service was excellent. Haven't tried the SRL++ yet cause I've been hauling snowmobiles since getting his tunes and ran the AK tow which I found to be a very good tune with some weight on the truck, shifting was great.
