Who's tunes would you recommend for this setup?
I am picking up my new truck next Friday.
2003 F350, crew cab, dually, 2wd. Manual ZF6. Truck has 187K on it.
This is what I want out of the tuner: Little to no smoke, good smooth power band, low EGTs. I want smooth power through the accelerator and don't want a massive fuel dump at any point really through the pedal. The goal would be 350-375hp and reliable.
I plan on running a 6637 DIY intake and gauges. Stock HPOP(for now). Stock injectors, 4" exhaust, upgraded clutch (eventually).
The truck is going to be my DD and tow pig. I tow a 30ft 5th wheel that weighs 10K loaded and occasionally tandem my rock buggy behind it on a car hauler(5500lbs). Weight is around 23k-24K combined. I live in Colorado and mountain tow quite a bit.
A six position tuner is all I need. That being said, would a standard TS chip with cookie cutter tunes fit the bill, or should I go custom tunes? If custom, who do you recommend and why?
1999.5 F350 DRW, CC, LB, A/T, 7.3L. Bank Exhaust brake, 4" Exhaust, BD power Thruster II turbo, PHP Hydra
