which custom tunes?

Hi guy I'm goin to be buyin the sct x3 I'm looking for imput and feed back on which tunes I should get. My truck will have head studs,gaskets done all that stuff 6.0s need done. Egr delete 4 or 5inch mbrp exhaust , with an intake not sure on a curtain brand feed back on that would be help ful too. The truck will be lvled with 33-35s street tires or an all terrain nothing to crazy

Ok so I'm look for 3 tunes:
First tune Id like to have an eco-tune/ tow tune. Mostly a tune to get 18+ mpg if possible and have a most than stock power.

My second tune is a race tune. I found one on YouTube that seems like it's pretty good. I'll give the link I think it's called extreme race tune from Eric @ innovative diesel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDZA...e_gdata_player. If you know of a faster tune let me know

My last tune I'm not sure what I want maybe a smaller race tune. Or a smoke tune idk any ideas?
Like I said I'd appreciate imput and if know of better ones let me know thanks for the imput I really appreciate it. Thanks
