Best tuner for 6.4

I know this will get a lot of opinions floating through, but that is what im lookin for. What will be the best tuner with the best tunes for my 2008 6.4 CCSB? I've heard alot of good about the spartan, but im also considering a SCT livewire, and dont know much about the minimaxx. All opinions and advice are appreciated!

Your not going to find an answer because everyone supports their purchase.
But lately KEM w/ the H&S are a hot item.

I asked this smae question about 3 weeks ago here

I've narrowed it to the above and Innovative b/c Eric released his tunes on a X3 with no honkin dash mount so I can just have my gauges . Plus Eric's tunes are sweet

H&S Mini Maxx gets my vote for best all-around tuner on the market for the 6.4L.

You know...all the old heads say this but you can use a multitude of search terms relative to tuners and tunes and not come up with crap with the limited search function on this site. Instead of being kinda condescending how 'bout pointing a newb in the right direction?
