Question Stock 05 6.0 programer

Would like to hear pros an cons of adding a programer to my 6.0, truck hauls a camper, 2600#, pulls a bass boat, no complaints with it, fuel milage not great 10 to 12 loaded at 70ish and seems to have plenty of pulling power as is. Reading on this site I see almost all have some kind of tuner along with other mods, don't want to screw things up as this is a ca. truck but was curious as what I could expect by just tuning, SCT, Banks, Edge or whatever any thoughts appreciated

(this is all based off the assumption that you will be using an SCT with custom tuning )

Pros - Better fuel mileage, better trans. shifts, turbo braking with tow tunes, GOBS of power (or just a little bit more, depends what you want)..........

Cons - NONE

No, really............. Cons - Cali won't like it (maybe that's a pro), higher EGT's, increased risk of HG / EGR problems(most tuners will turn EGR valve off though), decreased fuel economy if you can't keep your foot off the skinny pedal, higher risk of speeding tickets
