reccomended tuner

Hey guys, i dont kno alot about the 7.3 stoker im a 6 leaker man but a friend of mine just bought a 2001 e-350 van with a 7.3 powerstroke. The rig was purchased for him to take his son around the states to national motorcrosses. He will b pulling a inclosed trailer roughly weighing 6000 lbs. He doesnt want a race tune or anything too agressive. He jus wants a bit more pep without breaking the bank. He wants a tuner/chip and is gonna do a 4" exhaust, what tuner/chip do u guys reccomend for economy and towing?

dp tuner, power hungry performance, tony wildman all offer great tuning you cant beat with something like the edge, etc.

check on the classifieds here, or even on ebay for used chips. Used chips from the above mentioned can be retuned for your specific needs, etc.
