Which tuner to get???

OK, so I've read all the posts on tuners, and I'm still wondering which one to get for my 2011 F250 diesel that will give me the most power w/o killing Ford's warranty.
Looks like an AFE is the best bang for the buck for a cold air induction kit, but what else is the best for performance/HP?
Your knowledge, results, etc. will help me & others on here very much.
Thanx

well in short.. anything you put on your truck that tunes it will void the warranty if you get caught

And that's what I was afraid of.
But the majority of tuners say to just send them all my money and all will be fine.
Kinda like all the bodybuilding supplement companies tell ya to buy their muscle building products that'll build muscle while you sleep & you'll look like Lou Ferrigno in the morning.

I bet I have read thousands of posts on this topic easily. I have it between Spartan and H&S. I don't think you can go wrong with either, however; both have had a few issues on some vehicles. It's a small percentage but I really don't want to be a statistic either. Choices choices.

I gotcha.
I've read many posts on both of the tuners for almost a year now, but they keep coming out with new tuners frequently.

I'm not sure if I did or not cuz I haven't been on here since last winter.
I figured I'd give the tuners another year to release one that actually works properly and doesn't void the warranty.

I'd think after decades of tuners in existance it shouldn't take years of trying to release one that does the job for the 6.7 Ford.
