tunes for stock truck?

Would like a little more umph. what would be the best. The egr, oil cooler and head gaskets were all done at the dealer 1000 miles before I bought the truck. Not studded so want to know if it is safe to run a tune? I tow a 8-10K lbs about once a month. 2005 f250 ccsb 3.73 115k miles

When you say EGR was done, it was done at the dealer so I assume it was replaced not deleted?

At minimum you need to get something to monitor all engine vitals, especially ECT and EOT.
