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?

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.
