IIRC, H&S isn't capable of custom tunes for the 6.0 yet. So if you plan on running larger injectors and turbo, you might want to wait.

Iv already got the injectors in and mike from KEM said the tunes will be out late this month so I should be ok on that and if they don't have them before I pick a turbo I'll go with the sct with KEM

Cool, this means you could give us a review about the H&S custom tunes with dyno results. Could be interesting.
