Who/where to tune my truck with EFI live?

I am looking for the best of the best, preferably in the southwest. Im dealing with an '07, industrial injection cp3s, big twins, big sticks, smarty, snow w/m, etc etc. What I want, is to bring the truck to a reputable, high end shop for an EFI live tune, dial in my twin set up, and anything else I can do to increase power, lower EGTs, and really dial this truck in for what it is used for. Who/where does EFI live recommend? Ideally, I would be able to be there along with the driver of the truck to learn a thing or two about how the tune works and how I can play with it.

I can personally speak for Silver Bullet Tuning, Power Performance Enterprises, Doghouse Diesel, Anarchy Diesel Performance, and Dan's Diesel Performance. But really hard not to go with any of them.

Doghouse Diesel is probably the best place to get your tuning done. Rich is a genius when it comes to Cummins. It is worth the drive from Arizona to Alabama.

Engine- 1995 6BT
Past: 2008 Ram 2500 6.7. Stock camshaft (easier to list what was still stock)

I can highly recommend Dave Matthews Blue Grass Diesel as a purchase point. (Zach of Starlite does the tuning and he wrote the book so to speak.)

2007 2500 Mega 6.7L EFI Live, ATS Stage 2 68RFE w/ CoPilot, MHP/B&G TCM Mod Tune, 2 WD w/ NV271 Manual Transfer Case, Edge JWA Gauges, Nitto Terra Grappler 285 70 17, Fixed the DPF, NOX and EGR, much better now, AFE Stage 2 Pro Dry, Shibby Stage one intake, BM EWG, Autometer 7504/7505/7506 Boost gauges, Maxxbrake controller, Rancho 9000XL with MyRide, Hellwig air bags, A wealth of stealth.

Get a hold of chuck(strlegal) at Strapt Perfomance....he as someone near u. Not sure who does the tune itself but im thinkn its one of the guys on that list.

example. Im getting an autocal through big power diesel in palmdale ca. But the tune is actually written by Idaho Rob and u dont have to drive the truck anywhere

I thought it was just getting the service later that was the problem, not the first tune and the money.. seems like you just gotta be patient with some of the people. I doubt I could get a better tune than I have, but I have had to work on my patience sometimes and not expect too much from tuners.

Im picking up truck from shop tomorrow. Got an autocal through Big power diesel in lancaster ca. Tunes are written by Craigs buddy Idaho Robie....

...ill let u guys know how it is

edit..

Daaaaam, EFI live is the . I got setup with a tune that basically feels like my Crazy larry but between what is called performance and Extreme mode(which is the actual CL tune which is stupid fast but twitchy). I paid $700 for the autocal and the tunes are written by Idaho Rob or Robbie w/ Adrenaline Truck Performance. But i got it through my guy Craig Johnson w/ Big Power diesel.

Smoother- about 25%less smoke- Noticeably cooler egt's- did i mention smooth- Tranny feels way nice

...and i havent even tried the Hot tune.
I basically got a stock tune, economy tune, performance , and hot tune. Ive only been on the Performance all day. Dam lie o meter is really lieing like hell. Reading really high. Gonna do some hand calculating sometime this week.

I recommend it from any reputable tuner really.
