Question Programmer/Exhaust

Hey guys, so I have decided that i want to put a 4" down pipe and 5" down pipe back FloPro exhaust. I was going to buy it yesterday but found out that i HAVE to have a tune for my truck to run w/o the DPF. So my question is what programmer should i go with. I know this subject has been went over a millon timesm but I want to Buy some programmer and Program it to one setting and leave it alone. I want to know what would be safe and would keep me away from problems and also improve my MPG. Thanks for all suggestions.

I only run the mild tune, sometimes the wild tune when im in the mountains, its plenty of power for me and i dont want to risk anything even tho they say you wont. I would also do an egr block off and an intake, that contributes to my improvements.

Sounds great. I want to keep mine safe as you were saying. How hard is it to tune and how do you go about doing it? I want to get the 5" FloPro downpipe back thinking about the black maxx and a S&B intake. Havent thought about the egr block off. What exactly is that?
