This will be controversial, but I'd say Idaho Rob.

been asked on here before by several people. what I have learned by doing my research.
1. no two tuners are the same. each looks for a different outcome.
2. most of the big tuners have great customer service
3. efi is a huge step above canned tuners.

I have chosen to go with idaho rob on another truck I have and am very happy. His tunes have everything I was looking for.
safe for my truck as it is currently set up
little or no smoke
power band is impressive from start to finish
customer support is 2nd to none

keep in mind I have nothing against the other guys, they are I am sure quite good. But idaho rob had the reviews I was looking for and he is relatively close to me. He also does quite well with his race truck.

good luck, do your research.

What he said. This is controversial sorta like what brand engine oil you use. Idaho Rob, Kory Willis and Nick from Duramaxtuner are all very good at what they do.

Do some research here and see what you find. I offer tuning from Kory Willis of Power Performance Enterprises in Louisiana. If I can help with anything, please don't hesitate to ask.

Take care,

This is like asking which is better, Pepsi or Coke? It's more of a preference thing.
IdahoRob does great tuning. I am sure Nick and Kory are on par with Rob, but I have not used their tunes before.
Others on here have used Nick or Kory and would most likely say the same thing about the 3.
There are also other tuners out there that probably do a fine job, but they haven't gotten their name out nationally.
I would tell you to go with Rob personally, because that is who I use.
If one of the 3 is somewhat local to you, go with them. Support your local businesses. If none are that close, throw a dart at a board and pick between the 3.

Any tuner that is a beta tester for EFI Live is going to be a good choice...

But, I personally use Idaho Rob "Rob Coddens" from ATP. His tunes are smooth, powerful, safe and clean on the street...
