Sell the Superchips and buy an SCT with some custom tunes. I'm a bit biased sorry.

+1 for the EGR delete as well; modded pipe or full delete either way works great.

I would suggest at least having an Exhaust Gas Temperature gauge if you are running any sort of tuner. Especially for a 6.0 . With a tuner, you could easily end up burning out your EGR cooler. Now everyone else suggested the EGR delete. It's a good idea, but until you do that, I would highly recommend getting at least the EGT gauge.
