new to diesel ownership and need advice

Hello all,
I just purchsed my first diesel. I purchased an 04 F250 with the 6.0. This truck to the naked eye has been taken care of extremely well, interior and exterior. It has the K&N air filter system on it. Stainless MBPR exhaust. Not for sure of anything else yet. What I didi notice is that there is no "tuner". My question here is that "what tuner would be best for this truck?" I appreciate any info!

Get rid of the K&N filter and go back to stock if you have to or go with another company. K&N's don't filter well enough for our trucks. As far as tuner it is SCT with custom tunes all the way for the 6.0. You also need gauges (trans, boost, EGT) to monitor the vitals.
