Its been deleted...

So i did the egr delete last monday and ya'll were correct in saying that it would be one of the best decisions to make when owning a 6.0, so I guess my next question is if I purchase a tuner and don't do the head studs whats my limits for the tunes?? Sounds like SCT is the best choice but open to opinions!!!

I just Matt at gearhead gearheadautomotiveperformance he is really cool to deal with. After alot of searching I went with him over Eric because everyone that ran both said his tranny shifted smoother. Just let him know you dont have studs yet and he will make the tunes to fit a stock truck. When you talk to him it is like calling an old friend. Highly reccommmend him. I think most will eventualy blow the gaskets tuned or not.

Matt's Street Race Lite tune is $50 and shift's like a dream, makes great power. Eric's are $85 for the Xtreme Street or Xtreme Race.

Here is RWHP for Matt's tunes on an F450, should be a touch higher with a lighter drivetrain ie. F250. ~400HP and 700+ TQ at the rear wheels

Agreed!

I have both ID's XTREME STREET and Matt's Street Race lite which I just got a few weeks ago and so far, I really like it. It shifts smoother than the X-Street in my opinion. Both guy's are GREAT tuners and you won't go wrong with either guy.

I've always though that you don't want smooth shifts that a firm shift would be better because smooth shifting means that there's more wear on the clutch packs and what not on the internals of the transmision???

Smooth is not the tright term, sorry. I really don't know how to explain it without offending anyone.

Let's put it this way, my tranny still shifts firm, but has better street manners
