Need a lil tuner help

Alright guys I'm looking into getting a 6.4 and coming from a 7.3 I'm a little lost. And needing help with tuners. I know that h and s with MCC tuning is "the best" but from a budget standpoint I'm looking at a SCT with custom tunes.
My question is about Matt's custom tunes. Are his tunes for the SCT then same as his MCC tunes or completely different.
Money isn't a giant issue but just trying to get an idea on what would be best for me. I mainly just drive my truck normally. Maybe pull a small trailer once a week. And changing tunes once a week isn't a big deal for me.

Thanks for any help

His tunes are the same. I have seen where I think it was him that said the sct tunes might make a little better power, while the H&S gets a little better fuel mileage. But neither offsets the other enough to want to swap from one to the other for his tunes if you already have one.

Matt actually claims the HS makes a little better power. Better shifting also.

What kind of fuel mileage do you get on your tires?
