The 2 most popular choices are a TS style chip and DP tuner which have both been mentioned.
I have run both DP tuner and TS. I used to love my DP but always had egt issues and everyone told me my egts were normal. So I believed them and continued on.
One day I decided to try another TS chip (used to run one in my old 99) Did my research and decided on PHP (Power Hungry Performance).
The way PHP and DP tune is night and day different. Granted either can customize the tunes to an extent, standard PHP tunes are awesome. Truck is much more driveable with smoother power curve. I also didn't realize how touchy the pedal was on my DP tunes till I got my PHP tunes. EGT issues went away as well.
Keep in mind, my DP tunes were a good 3-4 yrs old and I am sure they have made some changes. Overall DP tunes keep many people happy as Do PHP.
For TS style chips, you also have the choice of Beans, Tony Wildman, Swamps, Gearhead, and BTS. These are all great tunes.
My recommendation is to go to the different sites, call them and choose the most appealing option for you. There is no wrong way to go with what I have listed.
