Question New Guy

Ok so im new to the 6.0 Powerstroke world. But im not new to diesels had cummmins chevys and they all have had some performance mods.
So here is what i got 04 f350 Crew S/B 4X4 4" lift 35" BFG's AUTO 6.0 with an Airaid intake, some sort of aftermarket exhaust 4" these where on the truck when i bought it, other then that the truck is stock no tuners or chips.

So now i know im ordering EGT TRANS TEMP AND BOOST Guages thats first on the list.But now what SCT tuner do I buy and where from, I live in Victoria bc canada and there are no SCT dealers for miles and miles. Do i buy ebay and chance it or do i buy from a dealer in the USA or what.Ill be using my truck as a daily driver to work about 20 miles both ways and towing a 8000 to 10000 pound trailer most summer on long (steep hills) and quading .
whats better X3 or the sf3 and who is the best for tuning for towing

Also plan on doing the egr delete and cooler in the near future before race season starts and i got no time for the old girl
