getting a new setup for my 2006 6.0

hey everyone this is my first post that i can remember anyway, I have a 06 6.0 with 92,000 miles on it, it has a 5 inch exhaust and edge juice platinum, its fun and has pretty good power and after 10,000 miles i have had no problems but it doesnt shift very smooth ive played with all the transmission settings and im never satisfied that i wont fry the tranny so i try to drive very conservatively aka no fun, so im gunna go with everyones advice on here and get an innovative custom tuned sct but my question is, should i get th x3 and analogue gauges, or edge cts insight gauges or an sct touch screen? which one will give me the most accurate readings? i like how the edge products lets you see basically everything going on with your truck but does the sct touch screen do the same thing?
ive also seen php gryphon cts has anyone tried this?

thanx
Lee

The SCT X3 with the Edge Insight is definitely the way to go. You will have access to more tuners with the SCT than any other solution.

thanx for the input im leaning heavily towards that option as i think about it, I really like how many things the insight moniters, do you know if the boost that it reads is accurate or is it just an estimate based on rpm or throttle position or something like that or is it the actual boost ? nice lookin truck by the way!

Yes it is. It gets it's information from the MAP sensor. Your boost gauge on the dash is pretty accurate too. That's what I use most and use my Insight to display other info. The primary screen I watch has EGT, Trans Temp, Coolant Temp, and Oil Temp. Monitoring ECT and EOT will let you know if your oil cooler is clogging before you start puking and blowing egr coolers and head gaskets.
