The Right Tune for an E99

Hey Guys,

I'm ready to get a tuner for my truck FINALLY! Problem is I am not sure which one to get. I hear a lot of great things about DP and was headed that route, but then read good things about PHP, TW, ect.

Is there a tuner that is the best for our E99's. I'm not looking for anything crazy. Just better response, smoother idol, a little more HP, etc. From looking at different tune sites I would probably be setting my tune on a 60hp econo setting and walking away, maybe the 80hp. I would get a tow safe tune as well for the big loads.

Anyways, your input is appreciated! Thanks!
Paul

Jody @ DP-Tuner is the only way to go . . . i had tunes from Eric @ Innovative Diesel and they were never quite right and the truck idled like crap. I've been running Jody's tunes for a couple years now and they are awesome to say the least. It's worth the money let me tell ya. Custom tunes vs canned tunes is a huge difference also.
