Okay i just traded in my 6.4 Powerstroke for a 6.0 Powerstroke

Couldnt pass it up tho
140K with EGR Delete, CAI, Studs and Headgakets, Straightpiped with SCT

Best DD tune seems like the SPD from truck source diesel. But all these trucks take to tunes a little differently.

Yeah seeing as how your studded, give vivian a call. I have her looney wild track file with early lockup and it flat out HAULS ARSE!!! Once it locks up it stays locked up and flat out pulls harder than any other tune I have ran. It will pull to 100 like the truck only weighs 500lbs lol. And I have gotten the best mileage to date out of it .... 19.22 mpg hand calculated and that's mixed between mostly city driving and some highway mileage.

I'm not studded yet...going in Monday for it...

But I've run matts srl for a while...until recently I had nothing to compare it to but I recently bought a 5015 from quick tricks and got the looney tune ..

Between the 2, I'm going to have to say the srl is my pick...

It feels faster to me...better spool ...it seems the powers more readily available.

I also have Vivians normal tow tune but didn't get but about 2 minutes into running it before a head gasket blew so I can't really say how I like its performance.

Will I try her looney wild tune after studs? I dk

I may try idp extreme street

All trucks react differently to tuning AND every person has different expectations. Just pick one and go from there. Having said that, I've run many of the tuners (all that you are asking about) and my personal preference is for Vivian's tuning based on the shifting and her customer service when I want things changed.
