Your tire size doesn't help. Really need studs and EGR delete with the X-race file. I've outran a couple 5.9's with the Smarty and other mods.

I don't know how much of a difference there is, but I raced a 5.9 with a Bullydog and smoked him like he was standing still. I have the IDP Xrace tune on stock head bolts.

Come on now - with my Banks on level 6 & 35" tires I smoked a tuned 5.9. 4 times in one night for that matter.

He had to have something else he didnt tell you about???

What year 5.9 is it? If it's not a common rail you should beat him pretty bad. As said above get an x-race file.

He probably had a built tranny too. A Smarty tuned 5.9 turned all the way up is pretty dang fast.

Its a 2003 hes still got the stock tranny for now, 4" down pipe to 5" stacks, and an intake.

What is the benefit to having the FICM re programed? What are the best bang for you buck transmission upgrades and how much more before i need that along with studs and egr delete? And am i better off to delete the egr or get an upgraded set up. Other recommend mods

Studs either now or later but at some point you will need them. It's just how these 6.0's are. Tune the truck and you will need studs sooner.
