Mod/Con Boiler recommendation

Hello All,
I have previously posted about all the problems I am having with my Peerless P80 boiler. It is now throwing more codes, and while I believe it will be solved with a sensor I have on order, I would like to consider a replacement. The boiler has been a problem from day one!

I was thinking about the Bosch, however I have a Tekmar setup with an outdoor reset switch, and would like to use my existing system. I believe the Bosch Greenstar only works with their FW200 module. I am slowly adding zones to what will become a whole house heating system, with a 40 gallon Peerless IDHW tank attached. Though a little undersized, I can fix that by adding a larger tank in the future, and bumping the temp an adding a mixing valve now. I am looking at a 100 BTU replacement. What are your thoughts on reliable boilers which can tie into my Tekmar controller and outdoor reset switch set up? Thanks!

    You're going get as many answers as there are mod/cons. But I'll throw my preference in. Viessmann CU3A Vitocrossal

    I believe the minfire on the green star is 30 or 50k btu. If you have small zones it may be a little too much

    Thanks All!
    @ Robert - I was specifically wanting units which would work with the tekmar controller! I did all the research on the Bosch and realized you have to use their outdoor reset. I thought others here would have more knowledge of the Tekmar setup and what would work best! Thanks...

    Vitocrossal works with an external 0-10VDC signal
