SCT tuner custom tunes

ok so i finally ordered my SCT tuner, and i also convinced my father in law to get one too. well i haven't been keeping up with all the tune writers and was wondering if anyone new has come up that is writing good stuff? i was gonna call cale at BTS if he is still writing tunes.
i want to get a good powerful street tune(but not too powerful im still on orginal headgaskets on my 03 6.0 w/128k knock on wood)
and for my father in law he will need a good tune that will work for towing his truck is for work but is also his personal truck so needs a good tune that will work for towing and for just daily driving w/out having to change tunes all the time.

any suggestions please let me know

Thanks
Jeremy

Does he offer a 100 HP tow file? I have heard that somewhere but I have never been able to get ahold of him either by phone or e-mail.

I got his 80 hp tow file. I don't believe he has a 100hp tow. I havn't been able to try mine yet but doing some reading some people say not to run more than 50 hp tow file if towing really heavy. It took me a while to get a hold of him to but when I did he had my files that night to me.
