Which is the best tune for a 6.7 SPE or Powerlab diesel

I was wanting to see if anyone has tried tunes from these two companies? If so what did you like about them and dislike, and which one would you recommend?
I'm about to pull the trigger and can't decide which route to go.

Thank
Richie

I have the SPE tune on mine and I like it a lot. I won't be running the transmission tune again though since my trucks in the shop getting new clutches. I might get KEM to tune mine when it gets done.

KEM has the best trans tunes IMO, I do not run them because the engine tunes over speed the turbo and the MPG is way down. It sure makes the computer think its getting good mileage though.

Sorry to hear about your transmission. SPE recommends NOT running the "hot x" tune as an everyday tune & especially when towing. We did revised the trans tune for those of you who still plan to run the tune daily. If you want the new trans tune, an emailed request is all that is needed.

That's alright, it's getting covered under warranty lol. I love the engine tune though

Oredered SPE hot x tune but havent recieved it yet. Running Powerlabs tune currently. Wouldnt recommend their transmission tune as for engine the performance tune is made to keep the engine together longer. Hottest EGT 934*, turbo 24 PSI max. Getting a low fuel rail pressure warning on performance setting. Confederate diesel of MD is suppose to be making tunes. Wish i would get my SPE tune soon.

So what's the scoop on the power labs tune? I've finally for SPE to adjust my file for towing and have a check engine light and can't get a reply back now. Other than Amy I can't get a reply so I'm giving up now. Willing to pay for something with results and someone that will reply.
