Power mod recamendations ?

I have an 05 f-350 with the 6.0. It's got the Aurora 3000 turbo, ARP head studs,4" turbo Back exhaust to dual 8" MBRP stacks and the Edge Juice programmer. It's lifted and has 37" tires. What other engine mods would you recommend ? This is a daily driver and sees all 4 seasons. I'm planning on an air intake in the near future.

First and foremost ditch the edge. And get an sct with custom tunes....

That will be a night and day difference, and will save your transmission.


After that your looking for injectors Idk about that turbo you have, but maybe a powermax, then from there you'd be looking at like a go go manifold and actual displacement mods.

I have to say based on your mod list, I would just start with a SCT tuner with custom tunes and go from there. Recommend either Innovative or Gearhead to start as they have ample experience with tuning for different turbo/injector combinations. Not saying that others cant but I know they can. JMO.

Sounds like SCT is the way to go. Thank you all for the info ! Did that blue spring kit make a noticeable difference ?

If you have a Edge Juice CS/CTS, then you can contact Power Hungry Performance to convert the Edge to a Gryphon so you can have custom tunes to accommodate the bigger turbo/injectors.
