Click on the "Vendors" link top, center of the page. Look for DP Tuner, Elite Diesel, PPE, TS, etc...others as well. Look at the websites, call and talk to the people, plan on spending some time with them.

The short answer from me is DP Tuner but they all can write programs that will do anything you need (high idle, tow programs, mpg, etc...).

Get those gauges installed! and a 3" down pipe would be nice before going with a chip. Not 100% necessary but you will notice a good amount of power gain with the down pipe change and drop egt 200 to 300 degrees.

I already gave my suggestion on chips but I don't think you will be dissapointed with any of the companies listed above.

I would get intake and exhaust before chip. Your going to tow, so get the basics first--air in & out. That prepares you for higher exhaust temps from more fuel. It's the proven way not to ruin valves and heads.
