Need Head Gaskets & EGR Delete + tuner

I have an '05 with 121K on it. It is time to do the head gaskets and oil cooler along with the egr delete. I am curious to know what tuners from SCT others are using. I was going to get the SCT3 than a shop had mentioned to use the SCt Live. Wondering if it is worth the extra money.
This truck is used a daily driver and pulls an 11,000lb fifth wheel.

What kind of realistic HP gains and ft.lbs torque can be expected with this scenario.
Any suggestions for a shop in northern il. or southern wisconsin would also be helpful in doing the work.

I guess it depends on if you want to add a gauge package. I liked the SCT X3 and used the Edge Insight CTS for gauges. I'd ask around people using the SCT LiveWire to see what they like/dislike.

I'd look to Gearhead for the SCT and tuning to help pull that 5'r you will enjoy the bump from the Tow tunes.

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend....those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

If you have an old iphone or andriod or tablet would suggest the itsx 4015 I've had really good luck with mine and you will have all your gauges at hand

Re: Need Head Gaskets & EGR Delete + tuner

Also with any sct tuner your still gonna want to order a custom tune...,there are a several tuners on this site. I've had around 10/12 custom tunes from various well known tuners and I like backroadperformance.com tunes the best ask anyone who has one of drews tunes and they will more then likely agree he is great to deal with and puts out great tunes
