Need some advice on a tow programmer!

I'm a proud new owner of a 2004 f250 6.0 powerstroke, it has 138000 mi on it, I have recently installed a sinister Egr delete, new oil cooler,coolant filtration system, drained and flushed the coolant , 4 in Mbrp turbo back no cat no muff, edge insight cts to monitor the trucks vitals!*

I bought this truck to mainly to tow a goose neck deck over trailer. Around 12000 pounds! *

Question is what kind of programmer would be a good choice to purchase to get a little more power and torque out of it for these heavy loads? *And what other mods should I install to make it a more reliable tow rig?
Keep in mind I don't have arp studs in yet! **

Thanks

Take your pic, the same tune may respond different on one truck to another.

In no particular order.
Quicktricks Automotive
Gearhead Automotive
Innovative Diesel
KEM
Truck Source Diesel

When towing my 5er, my truck and my driving style prefers Quicktricks (Vivian) Tow/Agg tow tune than Gearhead (Matt) and Innovative (Eric) tow tunes.
