6.0grammer

im wonderin what options there are for an inexpensive programmer that isnt radical, and could tune out the egr. dont wanna buy headstuds, dont wanna build an auto, just want a low power, low dollar programmer that is capable of tuning out the egr after a delete (if there is such a programmer). i know no1 wants to read thread after thread like this and im sorry

yea i kinda figured id get that answer. thats what ive been seein. . .so the sct is the tuner itself and i download "Custom tunes" or i create the tunes myself? and i can make a mild tune that wont destroy trans/blow heads off the 6.0? thanks for the input fellas.

ok so i see the economizer, livewire, and the sf3. . .the economizer sounds like what im lookin for and of course its the cheapest of the 3. . .will it do what i want?

You will need to contact a person who writes custom tuning, tell them what you are looking for from the program, and they will write the tune and e-mail it to you, then you load it on the programmer and then onto the veh. and i can make a mild tune that wont destroy trans/blow heads off the 6.0? YES, the tuners can do almost anything with custom tuning (disclaimer - some trucks will blow head gaskets and/or EGR cooler stock, so of course it's possible running a tune too, it's a risk you take) thanks for the input fellas.

ok so i see the economizer, livewire, and the sf3. . .the economizer sounds like what im lookin for and of course its the cheapest of the 3. . .will it do what i want? I would suggest either the SF3 or X3. The SF3 comes with pre-loaded "generic" tunes, and will store/load custom tunes, the X3 is for custom tunes only. I don't think the economizer will hold custom tunes, so your stuck with whatever comes with it
Answers to your questions in red. Hope this hepls clear some of your questions up.

Custom tuning is the only way to turn off the EGR.
