Looking for a new tuner to replace my xrt pro.I already have an exhaust and I'm looking into making my truck pretty much bullet proof because I will be towing a lot. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you want the stock trans to last when towing, stick with the stock tune.

If you want more power, a built trans and a good tow tune by a reputable tuner will be darn near bulletproof.... but not at all cheap. Expect to spend $5k between the two.

Where are you located? My vote is a stock power tune but adding turbo brake, and possibly changing shift points for larger tires if applicable.

Just saw the 35" tires in the sig. Not a good idea for a tow beast imho, but I would def bump shift points up.

I am wanting to stay with more of a stock tune. I don't need to add horse power for the weight that I tow. Which is about 13,000 lbs. I was thinking of taking out the egr. Ive already changed the exhaust. I just want something with gauges.

I agree and would say you can use tony or mark and not go wrong at all. Both are the top notch tuners.
