Which programmer to buy

Ok guy's I know this has been done to death but I'm not sure which programmer to buy. I have it narrowed down to either the Edge CTS or Quadzilla Iquad . I like the fact that when I leave the truck I don't have to worry about some jerk breaking into my truck if he sees my set up. On the plus side the Iquad can be used with my Ipad nice big screen. I know it's big but I like that screen size. The CTS has a Dash mount a smaller screen. I really don't know which one is more reliable. Help !!!!!!!!!


Thanks

If you are going to get a programmer better start saving for ARP studs because in time you will need them. The best wat to go is the Edge Insight CTS gauges only and if you have to have tunes get the SCT Xcallibrator3 W/ Custom Tunes By Innovative Diesel or Matt at Gearhead. Need acoolant filter ASAP to remove the casting sand and the gauges will tell you the health of the motor or it will look like this

Neither, SCT with custom tunes, auto meter fuel psi and EGT, and a scan gauge II for all others. I had an Edge Juice Platinum, it was pretty cool, SCT is a mucho bettero means of power.

50K programmer miles, coolant filter last weekend, no issues, OEM head gaskets. Although I will say that I don't hit the loud pedal below 190*.

FIRST get Gauges to monitor the essentials of this motor...
Here is a link for you to read.

Things to consider about owning a 6.0L



Then look into tuning and SCT w/ custom tunes is the way to go with these engines unless you like changing transmissions!!!
