Leave it Stock?

Last year I purchased a 2005 PSD CC with 65k miles. I use this truck daily for work and will probaly average around 50k miles per year, I am already at
92500 miles. My plan is to keep the truck until I get to around 250k miles on it. I really want to add a sct and some guages to liven it up a bit. I tow my boat a fair amount and it would be nice to have a little extra power too. My current mods are only a 4" turbo back straight pipe and the airraid drop in filter. I need this truck to be trouble free and reliable so is it a safe bet adding the sct or should I leave stock. In the almost 30k miles i have put on it since purchased in Sept I have not had any problems.

I know alot of people who have put a chip/tuner on their trucks, not for all out power, but fuel economy too and have very long life out of their truck. I would say go for it. anything to help with fuel economy now is a priceless option and will pay for itself in no time!
