Question What programmer to get??

I am thinking of getting the H&S mini maxx for my 05. 6.0 has any one had any luck with this yet? I am looking for something just to increase my Low end take off and not strip the tranny. I pull often and I don't race but i do want to be able to get there quick like. Any input will be helpful..

Thanks

The best thing would be an SCT with custom tunes. The SCT will tune your transmission along with your motor. They also allow you to set shift firmness. Just curious what other mods do you have done? If you don't have gauges that would be a first priority. That way you know where you sit.

The Livewire will just like your H&S. Its got everything for digital gauges.

Oh. Thanks I thought it was just a monitor to change the tune, and not digital gauges as well. So the SCT live wire would be the better buy for a programmer and gauges?

Yep, the H&S is a on the fly tuner. Those are terrible on your transmission. The SCT with custom tunes specifically for your truck will be the best thing for the truck.
