Best programming?

My 2000 F250 is in need of some better performance. I'm searching for what the best performance module, programmer, or chip is for a 99-03 7.3 powerstroke. Costs don't matter at the moment. I want to know a specific brand and model. Can anyone help me?

Get a hydra from php. You can purchase up to 17 tunes from who ever you want and have them all loaded on the same chip. Php, tony wild man, no limit, and gear head are all good tuners.

Also invest in gauges: egt, boost, pyro, and fuel pressure are good ones to have.

Do you have any other mods done to the truck or is it all stock?

The truck is all stock. The only thing not stock are 4" exhaust stacks. I am going to put a pyro and an egt gauge. I'm not sure if it's needed for a fuel pressure gauge with the stock fuel system.

Is it a down pipe back kit?

Get a 6637 filter and I also highly recommend a frx and doing the hutch and harpoon mod, also the zoodad mod is easy and free.

Fuel pressure gauge just helped me diagnose and fix a very low power when towing problem on my truck with stock fuel system. Not as important as trans temp and egt temp IMO but still good to have. Also thanks to a few guys on here pointing me in the right direction.

Low FP can and will kill your injectors, which are very expensive.
Low FP can lead to an expensive tow bill and a day off of work.

Seems like a pretty important gauge to me.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Another vote for gauges first. When you add power, any existing issues will be amplified. Without being able to monitor what your truck is doing, you'll end up chasing your tail.
