What programmer/tune do you recommend?

What mild tune/programmer do you guys recommend for my 05 6.0? I currently have exhaust, intake and ficmrepair.com Atlas 40 ficm upgrade (40hp upgrade or 75%, 10hp upgrade, overlap if I add a programmer). My truck has very low miles but no gauges to monitor which is why I am considering a mild programmer/tune upgrade to help improve power and fuel efficiency with my 38" tires

Honestly, spend the money on gauges first. Any tuner is going to make it run hotter as far as EGTs go.

I've tried a couple different combos and in the end the SCT with DP tunes were best, and look, you even have customer support on this site which is way cool

I prefer gages and an X3, but a Live Wire is an option. Just do yourself a favor and make sure you can see what's going on in your engine with some kind of gages/monitor.
