STOCK TO BAD A$$ NEED HELP

OK. I知 deployed right now. I will have a little extra jingle in my pocket when I get back for some upgrades. I have read all the threads on programmer vs programmer. I知 going with the SCT. What is the best one? F350 stock. Towing , gas mileage and would like to eat some V8s and rice burners. I知 not going to the track. The classic 的 want it all. I would just like to no where to buy a SCT and does it come programmed? How much does it cost to have other programs in stalled. I知 buying a exhaust and intake to. Any particular ones I should look at? Thanks for your help

sct is the right route no doubt. u can get it all from inovative diesel. also i recomend a mbrb exhaust. i forgot what i had the first time but when i threw the mbrp on she sounds totally amazing. even the guys at the shop that i got it on said it the best sounding 6.0 theve heard.
in fact they became a dealer of mbrp exhaust after i made them put it on mine hehe

I've looked at MBRP. which one? I would like single side out. S/S or Alum.? I don't feel the need to get fancy. I just want the performance. 4 or 5?

u dont need the ss unless ur up north, but even then, they wear out, not much u can do against salt.

sct x3 from innovative and purchase the innovative tunes with it. I run extreme street all the time, has plenty of arse.

The only diff of 4 and 5 inch is sound..5 inch is deeper. Unless your puttin out crazy hp, you dont need a 5 inch, 4 inch straight pipe is just fine.

i dont think any of them do adjust on the fly. A good tuner has to program the engine and tranny, hence why know one has shift on the fly for these trucks. It only takes a couple minutes to do both at most. SCT x3 or sf3 (same thing) and a Edge Insight CTS for gauges..and you are completely set.

Just throwing my 2 cents in... you can always buy a good used one here on the org and then purchase tunes from any of the custom tuners, that's what I did. I personally run Matt's, from Gearhead, tunes and really like them. I run the Banks 4" exhaust with the kitty delete and love the growl I get from it. As for intake, your stock one is good up to 500hp, so you really don't need to worry about that right away. But, I personally think that the stock intake is a PITA to mess with, so I am going to get an AFE intake in the near future, it will make dealing with the filter much easier.

Plus if you consider the cost of a stock filter, the cleanable ones will pay for themselves down the road.
