KEM tunes

Does anybody have any experience with KEM tunes? Don't see anybody running them on the 6.0 just wondering if they are any good.

never ran them, but I have heard mostly good things about the tuning. Maybe doesn't make as much power as some but supposedly make good power and drive great. try them and let us know what you think

What he said. I talked with a guy that works there and he said they're 6.0 tunes are a little on the conservative side,power wise, compared to others. Though are really great tunes all around.

Me too. That's why I wanted to know about their 6.0 tunes. Just don't hear about them like you do on the 6.4 board.

They do have FICM tuning but you have to send them yours and they will send it back in a day or two.
They were supposed to have remote FICM tuning using the H&S platform but things got put on hold, maybe because of the EPA thing H&S had to deal with.

They're crap on the 6.4L's.... Lots of guys have major issues with their tunes on the 6.4L. The KEM tunes on my '08 Lariat made me feel like the transmission was going to drop at any moment. They were undrivable.
