Default tuner/program question

So I recently stepped up from 93' d250 5.9 with 6 speed to a 2005 5.9L with auto. Apparently at some point in its life it had a bully dog tuner in it , which I found the power cord for still under the dash and decal on side ( remainder stolen at auction lot presumably )
So my question is. Are any tune that was installed with the bully dog still on the ecm? Or when it was removed did it return to stock tune?
I have to admit it moves down the road pretty well, and can hit 70+ by the bottom of the interstate on ramp.
Thanks for any help
One more thing Bully dog, Banks power or edge? Mostly wanting egt, trans temp and post psi, but plan to tow 7,000 lbs trailer with it, which it does fairly easily right now.

If you're just looking for a monitor, the edge insight cts 2 is a nice monitor. If you want tuning, HPT and smarty/MM3 are top of the line. Just make sure you have a reputable tuner write your tunes.

Thanks 11B/11C. I have looked at the insight cts2. I definitely want monitoring and certainly don't want major tunes. just economy empty and power when towing my 7,000 lbs camper.

Then i would look into the smarty touch. Edge programmers tend to run warm.
