Custom Tune Recommendations

I have an '06 F250 6.0 used for light towing and mostly around town driving.

I have
-ARP head studs
-EGR/Cooler delete
-SCT Edge with a stock tune and did the Power Hungry Atlas80
-Banks Intercooler
-4" turbo back
-long list of small fixes done when I did the delete

I'm installing a Garrett Powermax Stg1 with a billet spool.

I'm looking for advice on who's custom tunes to run. I don't want to make 800hp and have the trans shift all funny. I want something streetable and will work for my new turbo.

Any advice would be helpful...

Thanks,
Jay

I have tried a few tuners and still love the tunes from Matt at Gearhead for my powermax.
His SRL tune has great tranny shifting and very even power. No light switch effect.
