tuners

i have a 2005 f250 and my cousin has a 7.3 f350. he has a superchip and i do not want to buy a tuner only to use a very low power tune (i do not have head studs so i am not doing anything extreme). would his tuner work in my truck? i mean i assume i will have to download a different tune files.
i am also planning on adding a afe stage 2 intake, strait pipe, and egr delete

I would get an SCT with the custom tunes from the great tuners here on the board. But I would only do that AFTER I got a monitor to make sure that the motor is in good shape. There is no point polishing a turd. Dont add power until you know the vitals of the motor are ok. My truck is not studded and I run Looney from Vivian@quicktricks

Soon... coolant flush.

No, a 7.3 programmer will not work on a 6.0.

I still have OEM head bolts and have used IDP Extreme Race tune. Although I don't hit the loud pedal below 188/191 ECT.

Monitoring your EOT/ECT should be done before upgrading. Trust me, doing an EGR cooler delete then going back to swap an oil cooler SUCKS!

Yeah, only going to use lower tunes. LOL! How many times have we heard that one???

WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else

This is another great all-in-one option for the 6.0L market, we just released them a couple weeks back. We can put up to 4 custom tunes on it at once and it will work as a full monitoring device as well as a scanner and diagnostics tool. Let us know if we can help...

I recommend going with DP Tunner. I've tried multiple tuners and always end up going back to Jodi's tunes for towing power, safe and reliable, best customer service in the business, and most importantly, way, I mean way, more experience then the rest of the custom tuners out there. Nice to see a rep posting, first time I have seen that. I've got nothing but good things to say, been using DP tunes on last three diesels and ten years.
