Choosing a trans and custom tuning

Okay guys so my mustang FINALLY sold so I can go ahead and throw a performance trans in the truck. The big question is whether to go with Suncoast, Elite, or NADP and what extra upgraded pieces to put in there. At this point I'm leaning towards Elite but would like to hear everyone's experiences etc.

My next question is who should I get my custom tuning from? My build isn't extreme but I believe i've done enough to constitute some custom tuning (build thread My build thread - Powerstroke Nation). Should I go with KEM or IDP? I would really like to try IDP but the only thing holding me back is a livewire. Not sure I wanna spend $600 on a livewire and then pay for tunes on top of that.

Thanks guys!

My preference is Suncoast. As for the tuning, I have ran tunes that were designed for the stock tranny with no issues. I can't remember if you have a TCM or not?
