What do you want for your 6.0L???

This is a thread I feel like needs to be started, here at PMM we are committed to developing new products continually. What is there you would like for your trucks that is either not available or a product already being made that could use improvement to make it more functional? Let us know we are interested to hear your suggestions. There are a few products already coming down the pipe, but just really fishing for other ideas!

This may already be out there somewhere, but today I was thinking how cool it would be if a tuner company and a car audio company teamed up and made a touch screen doubled in type stereo/tuner type deal where you could have your data logging, programming, diagnostics as well as a nice audio video interface. It could just as well be a single company I just thought of it at the time because I was in a buddies truck and he has the sct touchscreen extreme and a very nice alpine head unit... Thought they'd go well together if they could be integrated.

How about a better design for the oil dipstick.

Mine is almost broken, and I know that there are others that have the same problem. It breaks at the plastic T

Just a few ideas...


A FICM that won't go to crap at the drop of a hat. I know there is at least one company currently working on this.

An injector upgrade that is not only reliable, but doesn't cost $3-4k for remans or $1500-2000 just to modify my existing cores.

A non vgt that spools well on a stock motor. Good luck with that. Unless we change the camshaft on a 6.0L a single non vgt sucks for normal driving and towing.

"Big oil" for a 6.0 that's as reliable and price comparable to a 7.3 system.

A twin turbo kit that the average guy could afford.


Give me time to think about it I'll come up with a dozen more things... I don't ask for much...

im kinda thinkin about a regulated return that yall could build that doesnt cost an arm and a leg and would be easy to install in the back. also a manifold like gogo diesel and maybe some tranny solenoids that work with different gears not just the direct one. a y pipe that will last but also have flexability for installing the turbo. a cheaper cooler cooler delete that is simple to install for the non machanical guys. there are numerous things just gotta start playin with them if you have the time and money

btw i also like the idea of a ficm and non vgt turbo. but i was lookin on yall's website and i think this would be kinda easy for yall to do but come up with your own style intake horn that doesnt cost as much as say the banks where you pay more for the name than anything
