Box of tuners - Hypertech / Edge Juice w/ Att and Predator

Hello all!
I read here often but rarely post but I have a question.

I have always run a hypertech program on my truck because it was easy to remove for warranty service. Now that my warranty is over I am open to adding more permanent options.

My buddy sold his 05 6.0 and took off a Edge juice w. Attitude and a Predator performance module. He had no need for them so he gave them to me.

I am happy with the hypertech but not that familiar with the other two. I think he had his stacked but did blow a HG so that may not be the route I would take.

Ideally I would be adding the Edge insight CTS but funds wont allow that now so just want to try to get some opinions on what I have laying around.

Thanks all.

I would stay away from the diablo sport predator.. did use one for awhile what came with the truck.
Didnt like what it did to the truck... bought sct live wire with custom tunes and i like it.
Except the size of it..

It's the Dr Performance Predator. It looks like it plugs inline somewhere and stays in the truck.

USCTRACK - What year/engine/ trans is your truck? If you have a 6.0, the best option you can do is use the Edge for nothing but gauges and get an SCT with custom tunes!!

How is the sct different from the hypertech that I have been running? I don't know a lot about them to compare and contrast. I believe that hypertech does adjust transmission as well, but I've been wrong before.

I have a 06 6.0 4wd Tuscany edition. I don't know what transmission I have. If I were to get an SCT which model would you suggest being that I'm on a tight budget. Thanks.

See previous question as well.

SCT SF3 is the way I would go. You could easily sell the others and buy a used one and still have money left over to get a custom file written for your truck.

Post a pic of your FTX! I too have one and don't see many out there I love these trucks!
