dp, beans, tw, and php seem to be the best for the 7.3. I personally went with dp and have zero regrets, love it.

2000 ford f-250 leveled off, crew cab, headlight upgrade, gauges; pyro, boost, tranny. 6637 intake. 06 lariat dash/seats/interior. DP tuned. A dash of this, a dash of that

I have Tyrant tunes and I love them, but they are too busy right now and not doing tuning. If your info is correct you live in Texas. Gearhead and Truck Source Diesel are both in Texas. Gearhead would be my second choice and have read nothing but good things about Truck Source Diesel.

I have DP and PHP and love them both. PHP is better and cheaper in my opinion.

I ran DP for 4 yrs and currently running PHP. I like PHP better. I am getting some Beans tunes as well to try. I have heard great things about Beans, Plus they can send you tunes which is what I want.
I am supposed to get some TW tunes from PHP as well, need to see where they are. All the mentioned are good. There is no wrong answer.

Ya gotta be careful of those batgirl tunes! hehe.

I would do Beans and then TW. Sell that bullycrap tuner and use the money for custom tunes.
