Ezlynk or a new tuner?

Hey guys. I’ve searched around here but found nothing related to what I’m looking for. I recently purchased a 2013 F-250. It’s already been fully deleted. So no egr, dpf, or scr. It came with an Ezlynk tuner and has a sotf switch under the dash. I know absolutely nothing about the tunes on the truck or who they’re from.

My question is, should I use the tuner that came with it(I’m definitely not familiar with ezlynk) and find a tuner to do some new tunes? Or should I just start from square one with a new tuner and remove the sotf switch?

I’m not looking for high horsepower or crazy torque. Just close to stock levels, I don’t want to do anything crazy with it. Mainly for pulling a car trailer and a future camper. Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

I figured at least one person would say that lol. Since I wasn’t wanting any hp tunes, what about going with a mini maxx to just turn off emissions? I did find a new one for 500 bucks.

When you get your tunes done they are custom. Tell them you want stock power. And they will do that.

Mini max is old and played out. Tunes are canned.

Before I go through all that, do you happen to know of a way to see what tuning has been put into the truck?

Start here: https://www.ezlynk.com/ I'm sure you can figure what's "missing".

C) Buy Banks Performance stuff...not too bad overall for what they sell.
