Banks 6 gun or SCT

I have an 07 f-250 and am having a hard time deciding what kind of tuner to get. Its between a banks 6 gun and a custom tuned SCT by innovative. My only mod is a 5" exhaust system and am going to do guages next. I have a heavy foot and my main concern is going with the tuner that is safest for my motor and trans and something that would be hardest to trace so it wont void my warranty. What are yalls thoughts?

I'll drop a load in my shorts if I actually hear one person recommend the 6 gun over Innovative's SCT tuning. A person that actually has a clue that is...

Just call Eric or Ted and order the Xcal3. Opt for an Xtreme file if you want the most out of it. Enough said... Have fun!

Thanks for the quick replies! What are the chances that the dealer will know that i am running a tuner if i go with the SCT and take it back to stock before i take it in? Also what are the safest tunes to get from innovative and is the smoke tune safe to run?
