Tuner Question

With my truck bone stock, is it a good idea to run a tuner? I am looking at the SCT Livewire so I can do a street tune to turn off the EGR and the CEL. It's a PO401 and I heard even if you do clean the EGR valve the CEL won't go away. I also want to do the Livewire to check temps and keep up with those so I can fix problems before the start hopefully. During the trucks life she won't do a lot of towing and the only other mods I might do is a 4 inch exhaust and maybe a CAI. Thanks guys, Ben

Stock CAI is the best setup you can run unless you plan on pushing over 500hp.
