To many good tunes!! Which to choose!?

Ok so my truck has gone under the knife over the last few weeks, pmax turbo, egr delete, arp studs, stc update, blue spring, oil cooler edge insight and all the bells and whistles..
I'm looking into buying some tunes tomorrow but I've heard so many mixed reviews on tunes I don't know what ones to choose.. I was thinking I would get extreme x or extreme race or maybe both haha then extreme street and tow for hauling my flat bed and jeep through the mountains.. But after reading about Vivian's tunes and the extreme panty dropper I'm all mixed up and don't know what ones to really get..
I want to be able to have a fast dodge/Chevy smoking daily driver, hit the drags now and then but still need to be able to tow 7k lbs up steep grades.

2007 ccsb, Arp studs, stock HG, kc billet wheel powermax turbo, Banks intercooler kit, egr delete, stock downpipe followed by 4in straight, updated oil pipes & dummy plugs, stc fittings, SCT idp custom tunes, edge cts monitor, blue spring update, new oil cooler, elc coolant, airraid cold air intake, 35x12.5x18 Toyo mt's, rancho rs9000 shocks

I would honestly choose "raped ape" by Drew at Backroad performance as a race and "street runner" tune as a daily driver.

www.backroadperformance.com

I had SPD and not a fan to be honest, I contacted Chris more than enough that I'm moving on, every time he sends a revised tune, it fixes one problem but creates another. Hard tranny shifts, huge slippage, my truck jerks while switching from 1st to 2nd, just figured I'd move on. Not trying to throw Chris under the bus, but that's my experience, and respect what he does.


I had street runner as my daily driver from Drew and he hit it the nail on the head, crisp, firm shifts, I use that as my daily driver and love it, this tune is here to stay, and also got the raped ape when I want to race a cummins or an import (let's face it, street runner will do the job, they don't stand a chance) and also got the tow tune, which I will be using this week hauling my pop's boat over the Eastern Washington passes.

Sorry for the long winded post.

I had extreme street before the truck was studded and I loved it then after studs I got Matt's srl+ And I was amazed. The big thing with me is reliability and the srl+ shifts are smooth as butter

06 XL ext-cab shortbed

-Headstuds
-EGR cooler delete
-Sinister Coolant Filter Kit w/ Napa 4070 filter
-4" MBRP straightpipe
-Wicked Wheel 2
-K&N intake
-SCT Livewire w/ SRL+ tune
-JMS egt probe
-blue spring mod
-2.5" leveling kit
-33" BFG A/T's

Yes, I did mean to make my username PowertotheStroke but I made a typo

All of these guys^^ are WRONG!!!!


Well maybe not "wrong"....


Simple answer....try them ALL!!! Find the one that suits you and the truck the best and run it. Everyone is different. The SPD was the best on mine. I had all the HOT tunes that all the big tuners made and the SPD was best. Second was Matts SRL extreme...except for the 50mph OD shift.
