Any of the top tune writers will do. Too many variable to give you a straight answer. Your just gonna have to pick a writer and go from there.

A tune in my truck may react a little different in your truck. PCM strategy, truck mods, and personal driving habits can give you mixed reviews.


Here is a post describing some of the tunes.

list of tunes and where to get them?

What the post above me said. The tuners are kick butt. They will work with you to make it right. It's more about what your rig likes. Contact one of them - all great people and willing to help.

Tuning is quite a challenge. I don't know of too many that are alike. Each will work the tuning to their customer's needs/desires. Just be sure to give the tuning time to adjust to your local area and driving habits. I have personally experienced as much as two weeks of driving before the tune was settled in to my driving.
