I would either call IDP or PHP and get their remote tuner. They send it to you, you tune the truck, and send it back. they have a core charge that is returned when you refunded the tuner.

We did a dyno/FICM tuning day at earlier this month and saw gains from 35rwhp and 60lbs-ft on stock trucks down to 10rwhp and 20lbs-ft on tuned trucks with big race tunes loaded. I gained some of the smallest numbers, but the throttle response after the tunes was simply amazing. These were all with his old FICM tunes. I'm going back ASAP for his new FICM tuning. Bill is top notch when it comes to tuning PSD's.

Well it all depends on if you are tuned above stock and by how much because there is only so much fuel that can flow through a stock injector and the methods of releasing that fuel can be had through both FICM and ECM tuning so there will be limits to each but either way let's say you were at 420-430hp on a race tune with a stock set up. FICM tuning will get you the rest of the way to the max that your injectors will put out and should be good for 440-450 pretty easily as there are a few guys I have heard that have put down those sort of numbers with both types of tuning. Not to mention a smoother running engine, better throttle response, and fuel economy. JMO.

We had 3 6.0's outta 21 I think, break the 450RWHP barrier with stock sticks and air. I had 451rwhp, our President (Super Diesel) had 454 and the third guy hit 450. I'm gonna get the reflash to his newest FICM tune.
