New to Powerstroke diesel. HAWLLP!!!!!!

Hi my names Max and i recently purchased a 05 6.0 with leveling kit, trail grapplers, straight pipe exhaust, and a bully dog triple dog programmer. This is where i need help. Im only 16 and this is my second truck and im new to diesel (first truck being 08 Ram Hemi). I like the idea of a programmer and great mileage but i dont want to blow a gasket and or my transmission. i would like to confidently be able to mash the pedal when the loser in the ricer pulls up next to me. i have heard bully dogs are terrible and ive heard their great. what do i need to do to make my truck fast, but also SAFE. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Custom tuned SCT is the only way to go. Tell the company writing your programs what mods you do / don't have and your goals and they'll email you files to match.

Get an EGR delete, SCT w/TSD tunes, and a scangauge II to monitor oil and coolant temps. Also delete the CAT if it isnt already.
