What programmer to buy??

what programmer could i buy for my 6.0 that would be the safest,. i dont have studs, or EGR delete.. but i dont give my truck hell or pull heavy loads i just want the little extra power for passing.. i got a little cash and need to know what to buy that has the least change of blowing my motor.. i understand that the early 6.0 can blow even stock but what will have the least chaances!!

thanks for all replies

SCT all the way. Do a search for SCT, you'll find lots of info. Tunes your tranny as well. There are also custom tunes made for non-studded trucks.

Gauges first, you need to check the health of he motor first before you start putting on a tuner.
Things to consider about owning a 6.0L


As far as tuner, SCT with custom tunes.

^^^^ What lilpooh said. Gauges aren't an option for a 6.0. Then SCT with custom tunes. The Edge CTS or Scangauge 2 are good options for engine monitoring.
