new with sct

ok so my brother and i went into town to finally get him some power for his ford. we took home a sct excal3. first of all, what power levels does it have? i see tow 55, tow 65, street, and performance. the performance tune wont work though and im guessing its because it only comes with 3 tunes. and how do we download these tunes i hear about? and how far can he push this 6.0? as far as tranny and motor goes. thanks for yalls help
oh and the truck has about 64,000 miles and in REALLY good shape

my truck: 2003 standard output cummins, 8" lift on 37s, smarty, cold air, straight pipe

little brothers's truck: 2005 6.0 superduty no cat no muffler 35s sct excal3 with innovative diesel tunes, afe cold air

what are the preloaded tunes on the downloader? i see 4 of them and we only put it on street. we tryed performance but it gave me an error message. is this not pre-loaded or what? so im guessing that street is the highest level, and im curious how much horsepower that is.
