Question Innovative Diesel Tunes good for a Stock 6.0?

I'm thinking about picking up an SCT X4 tuner from Innovative Diesel. For a little extra, they offer 3 custom tunes to go with it. I've got a pretty much stock 05' F250 with a little over 200,000 miles on it. I use it for towing my 6,000lb camper, and my 5,000lb boat. I'm looking for a daily driver tune that will give me a little more performance and power, and more MPG while just cruising around town. Another tune for when I'm towing my camper and boat......and maybe a third tune strictly for squeezing the most MPG out of the truck while on long road trips.

Innovative has suggest their Extreme Street Tune for a DD tune, their Street Tune for when I'm towing stuff under 10,000lbs, and their Economy Tune for ...well, for getting more MPG.

Are all of these tunes safe for a stock motor with stock head gaskets and bolts? I have a monitor set up so I can keep an eye on everything.

Overall...how are the Innovative tunes compared to all of the other guys out there?

Thanks!

I did not like innovative tunes. They tried several revisions and did not get it right. I use drew at BRP . I have a few tunes from him and I get the best drivability and shifting from his tunes

If you have not replaced headgaskets at all start saving now especially if you had any power
