Who to buy tuner from?

I'm doing stud job and I'll be doing Egr delete(Not sure which brand yet) all this is in about 2 weeks. I see quick tricks has the X3 for sale 425 with unlimitted tunes. Do I want to set myself in with just one custom tuner. I'm not going to do any major power upgrades now just doing the reliabilty things now. Just was wondering if anyone had any input.

2005 F-250 XLT ECSB 6.0 ZF6, Atlas 40, ARPs, Blue Spring, IPR Coolant Filter, Delete, QT Tunes, Rotella ELC, Cutting Edge Up-Pipes

I bought my X3 from Quicktricks, unlimited tuning. That's 11+ tunes to play with. Then if you curios about other tune writers, you can buy single tunes for $40-$60 a piece or package of 3 tunes for $100-$160.

I picked up a used x2 with 4 unlocks left shipped to my door for 100 bucks. Figured I'd have some cash to blow on tunes with good reviews. I'm going with Tonys tune first as the reviews lately have been really good.
