hands down the SCT with custom tunes is the way to go on a 6.0L.... your also going to need some gauges...

a tuner like this: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning

we can package you out a deal for the tuner, gauges and exhaust if your interested...

let me know

Depends on what you want to do to it, I prefer the Quadzilla Adrenaline, 180rwhp is enough unless you want to put head gaskets and studs on it. I ran the quadzilla for 122,000 miles with no issues, got great gas mileage and used the fourth and fifth setting to tow 13,000.
