New to the forum, need advice on tunning

Hi, just got my 2005 F250 Larait gray. Being reading most of the tunning
threads and will like to ask for some suggestions.

Little Hx:
2005 with 97,798miles, one owner always in Central Fl.
4x4 valve @ 97,798 miles
fuel pressure reg @ 94,134
alternator and both batteries @ 82,199
egr, oil cooler, STC fitting, ICP sensor and connector, cleaned turbo, flush VC9, all @ 81,994
fuel filters @ 89, 994
transmission fluid @ 81,994

those are the major repairs and issues listed on the full hx report from the Ford dealer that I bought the truck from. She was sold and maintained at the same dealer all her life.

To my questions, will it be safe to run tunning with full monitoring system???
SCT SF3
Edge Insight
EGT monitor

As for tunning I live in Fl so I am leaning towards Vivian for easy access and fellow forum positive reviews.

any advice will be greatly appreciated.

x2 on that. Since you live in florida, you might even be able to take your truck to Vivian and have it live tuned
