I'm sorry, but I couldn't read the text because I was mesmerized by your avatar

Just pick a tuner, PHP, DP, etc.
Get a 60hp codes tow tune and a 120 hp tune and whatever else sounds appealing and call it a day.

Where you from? There is an 08 converted excursion running around here.

DP is great. The 16 options is you can have anywhere from 1-16 tunes on the chip. It's shift on the fly too

I run DP.
It's been good to me.
I have 7 positions filled on my chip.
For you, I would recommend;
1-stock
2-60hp tow
3-exhaust brake
4-80 Eco/daily driver
5-120race/fun

Or something to that effect

Just saw this for sale locally. Not sure if its a good price or not as I'm not animist with 7.3 mods. I would think it was though.

Other lower cost mods that should be on the top of your list.

6.0 trans cooler, 4" turbo back exhaust, CAI (cheapest route is the 6637 mod), since you live in FL, delete the EBPV butterfly in the turbo outlet flange, BTS or John Wood trans valve body, of course the chip.

Biggest thing is to open up the air systems to let it breath. Keep the trans cool. Do not neglect the oil change intervals.
