Ready for a Tuner

Alright so I am ready to be non stock. What is the best tuner combo for the 6.0. I know people ask this all the time I guess I am still a little confused. I know SCT is the way to go just which one. Thanks for the help!!

I'm running the SCT X3, which is the handheld that only runs custom files. I use an Edge Insight CS to monitor along with a few analog gauges.

The SCT SF3, holds three factory, and three customs - another viable option.

I don't know much about the SCT Livewire - and runs as its own monitor package.

Link doesn't work. I prefer the X3 or SF3 for programming and the Edge Insight for monitoring. Best combo out there IMO.

Never heard of MorePowerTuning.

For files, there are a number of great tuners out there. Most popular here are Eric @ Innovative Diesel, Matt @ Gearhead Automotive, and Vivian @ Quick Tricks.

Email through their associated websites are most effective. Each have a three tune package when you buy the tuner through them.
