For the 6.0L, the SCT tuner with custom tunes is the best bet. Anything else will be substandard and could cause problems with your transmission because the SCT is the only device that can tune the 5R110.

I'll piggy back on with what shawn said. For the 6.0 there is really only one tuning device worth running on it and that is the SCT. As Shawn mentioned it can tune the transmission so it can handle the extra power being required of the motor and it is the only tuner to allow you to change your motor's configuration in the future and accomodate the upgrades. Just take it from someone who has ran the SCT and "other tuners" and is still running the SCT. Hope this helps man.

thanks, for the input so far, is it the 3015 model sct , or the livewire? I use to get 14.4 pulling a 53ft wedge trailer ,and since the oil and egr coolers let go and the dealer worked on it , it some how got derated. and I can't get better than 9.6 towing .

Yes I would get the 3015 (SF3) model and then do something else for gauges/monitoring and I would get custom tunes for it. You're not going to want to stick with the canned tunes forever if you want the most potential from your truck.

I would contact Bill at PHP before you tune it and have your FICM and ECM strategy rolled back to help with your mileage. That's why it has went down, when Ford did the work they reprogrammed the truck. Get the strategy fixed and then get your custom tunes.

When I was using a Quad module it had better low end than my SCT tuning. I even had a SCT tranny only tune for awhile with good results. Currently all the SCT tuning changes and FICM tuning has been worlds above what was out years ago.

I currently run TSD SCT tuning with PHP Atlas 40 with no complaints.

Using an SCT with a FICM tune is your best option. As posted get the PCM/FICM roll back tuning for best results.
