If you go on any forum that has a 6.0 section, 90% or higher of the answer will tell you SCT for the 6.0. Just like any other make truck (dodge,chevy) they have there specific tuner that works best for there truck.
SCT has the best programs for the 6.0, along with the most options on who you want to get custom tunes from. Also if you run into issues with the SCT there are a ton of member that give you a hand with resolving any issues. Along with the SCT support is very good.
After you get you x-3 your gonna go to SCT website to download the drivers and software for the device, then you need to hook it up to the truck to get the strategy code to give to your custom tuner so he can send you the proper files.
Then you will get the custom tunes sent to you by e-mail, and save them to your PC. After you have the custom tunes, you can plug in the x-3 and load up the custom files.
Now you can hook up the x-3 to the truck and load in tunes. When you goto load tunes, the x-3 will pull out your stock file and paste in the custom file. Once the x-3 has the stock file in it, you can go to your PC and save a copy of the stock file to your PC just in case you have issues later on. After you have your custom tune files and your stock file, save them onto a flash drive just in case your PC takes a dump, you wont have to buy new ones.
As far as what tunes to get, this will depend on what you want to do with the truck. Towing, racing, week-end warrior!! Just let your tuner guy/girl know what you have done to the truck so they can set you up with the right tunes.
