I have no experience with any of those tuners but please when considering a tuner think about all of your truck, motor and tranny. I have nothing against any of those tuners, don't get me wrong, I just know that there are better products out there for the 6.0L. It all depends on what you are wanting out of your truck and your driving style. It may be best to wait and save up for what you really want. That is just my opinion.

I have not run any of dfuser's tunes so I can't comment on them. I do however run innovative's. I have used his tow tune and I do like it. If you are going to do any towing at all I really don't think I would not mess with anything that does not tune your tranny. That is just me though. I have run a tuner that did not tune the tranny and I ended up with a torn up transmission. It is not one of the ones you are asking about. I am sure the ones you are asking about can give you more power and help with your fuel mileage but like I said there are better products out there. Yes they cost a little more but then again, you get what you pay for. To answer your question, I have no idea if innovative price matches. You will have to contact them about that. You might check with Raul @ Steath Automotive. He usually has some kind of special running on SCT programmers. There are other vendors here as well that handles SCT. Let me know if I can help you.
