E99 Chip question

Hey guys I have a buddy who is into custom tuning and is going to burn me a single position chip. My question is with my truck being the e99 which tune would suit my early pickup best? I mostly drive my truck back and forth to work with the occasional hot rod session. Looking to wake the dog up. I originally was looking at the 100hp tune but have been debating maybe cutting back to the 75 or maybe less. I have the riffraff intake kit and 3.5 straight pipe.

I will be installing gauges shortly after. The stock exhaust doesn't sound terrible defiantly not a 4 or 5 inch sound. I don't mind it, kinda quiet on the freeway but it can get sone attention depending on the skinny pedal position. Also mine is put out in front of the rear tire because the owner before me used 2.75 pipe to delete and repair sections. I put a 120 degree elbow to a 5" tip.

ok since your getting gauges i would say 75hp would be a good tune. not too powerful so you cant tow, but good enough for some more power.

sweet ill let my dad know, he thinks my truck is a little loud lol 4 inch straight pipe.

Straight piping the stock exhaust sounds great. It has a more even tone than a 4 or 5 in exhaust, but the aftermarket exhaust have a deeper tone.

They are power-struck's tunes. I think I'm gonna go with the 75 for now. I said custom but from my understanding they are more along the lines of canned tunes.
