Who is producing the best SCT tune and What you like about them!

I recently bought a 05 F250 CC SB 4x4 that already had the ARP Studs, EGR delete, and 4" exhaust done when I bought it. So, I went out and got an SCT tuner and have been happy with the canned tunes but am looking for somthing more. What I want is a tune to help with the MPG's and FUN factors along with clean shifts and respectable EGT's. I want one for DD and one for towing horses, camper, boat, or tractor when I am not on the Daily Drive. I am Not A Street Racer, but I do like being able to squish the skinny pedal and watch my counterparts disapear;

Anyone have any sugestions, and why you like them

I have a wrong strategy tune from IDP that was in my SCT when I bought it....I freaking love it too. I am going to buy the right strategy tune as soon as he gets back in his office.

K&N FIPK, Straight Exhaust w/6" tip, SCT w/IDP tunes, High Idle Mod,Zoodad

You should consider getting rid of the Edge. Seriously.

Re: Who is producing the best SCT tune and What you like about them!

New to the site here. My question is who does tunes for the SCT.
Everyone says to check vendor section or do a search but I just come up with comments about who likes who. Is there just a list of guys that make tunes??? Then I will get ahold of the one I want.

Thanks
