Tuner advice

Ok guys...first off, I know there is alot of info on here about this subject, almost too much, as my mind starts to twist after reading most of it. So here is my simple question: I have an '05 F350 KR DRW 4 door 4x4 with an auto tranny. I have done the egr delete, new oil cooler, the blue spring upgrade, cleaned the turbo, and I run synthetic 5w40 Rotella. I have a SGII for the vitals.The truck has an Edge Juice with attitude on it now. I run it on #3 setting. I hear all kinda bad things about this tuner, and am gonna buy an SCT. I have a CEL that comes on when it feels like it for the egr delete, so I was hoping to fix that with the tuner. I probably will just run the canned tunes. Dunno yet. Would like the option to get custom tunes for it in the future if I decide to. Anyways, could you guys suggest the proper SCT model for me...and possibly where to get it ? Thanks.

You would want the SCT X-3. In no particular order.




And while your at it, get at a EGT gauge and fuel psi gauge. EGT's can climb fast with a hot tune, and fuel psi is a must if you want your injectors to last.

^^^ what he said. I would look for a used xcal 2 or x3, could probably save 100-150 bucks. Just make sure it has a few unlocks left on it.
