Tony is a tuner, and one of the better ones. The chip is a TS chip. The nice thing about it is you can run all the tunes, you're not limited to one tuner. TW, PHP, and Beans are the big three I've heard of. I'm running PHP tunes, and had the pleasure of chatting with both Bill and Tony at an event PHP hosted. Both are great guys and will talk with you to ensure you get the best tunes for your application.
Get the idea of a body lift out of your head. Aside from the safety concerns that come with them, there's too many other things that you have to modify in order to not hate life.
Do your performance mods before you get a chip, as they can make a difference in the tunes. I only have intake and exhaust, which, while needed, don't make a big difference in tunes. If you get bigger injectors, bigger turbo, etc, those will make a difference.
My truck was chipped in it's previous life, so install was simple for me, and I couldn't tell you the process for a virgin truck.
I also put on a John Woods valve body to cure the hard shifting a chip can cause. Works great. You also want at least a pyro gauge before all else. Letting your EGT cool before shutting down will extend turbo life. Don't run a K&N (or similar) filter, as you will dust your turbo.
