I'd love to hear your theory on this.....


To the O.P., Most will tell you a custom tuned SCT. I would say from Innovative Diesel. Now if your friend is simply looking for some simple and safe power, a canned tow tune would be cheaper and easier.

People on the .Org, myself included despise edge TUNING. The GAUGES from edge are loved from sea to sea though. I personally would just get a cortex from superchips if you didn't need or want the expense of custom tunes since you get most of the features of the SCT.

Yeah, all of the superchips tuning is the same, just different devices with different features and warranties. The performance tune they have is pretty good for the money, good power and nothing wild in the smoke department, just a nice puff till the boost comes up.
