Which Programmer to use.

Ok i have a superchips programmer that i Bought when i had my 03 6.0. I just recently bought a 06 King Ranch 6.0. I installed the superchips and it is working fine. My buddy had a 06 6.0 with a predator programmer. He sold his truck and gave me his programmer cause he bought a chevy. So which is the better programmer? I havent installed the Diablo yet wanted to get everyones opinion first. Any help is great. Thanks

Well if you have to choose out of any of those i'd use ur superchip. If possible you should save up and get a SCT programmer then you will be satisfied, its worth the money for what youd get out of it.

Diablo has a bad rap for cooking head gaskets and causing puking. That being said recently they have revamped their programming and it is suppost to be a lot better. Now if you can update the programmer to that software I have no clue. The new software was being discussed less than 2 weeks ago. I personally would sell both tuners and get either a sct or a spartan phalanx. Both use custom tunes and do a better job of balancing fuel, timing and boost to make the 6.0 live longer tuned. I currently run the hybrid race tune from the archive and am basically stock with no issues to date. I doubt I would say the same running other tuners at their top level ( the hybrid race is 150hp or more)
