Looking for some more power.

So I have a 04 ford 6.0 with just a hypertech max energy program, air intake and aftermarket exhaust. Just looking for some more power so just looking for some.suggestions, like an egr delete or something. Thanks.

You will notice a night and day difference with a SCT and a custom race tune over the Hypertech. Also (like moto said) get that EGR crap off ASAP if you can get away with it in your state



05 F250 FX4 Lariat, SCT Livewire, 155cc injectors, Gryphon FICM tuner, ARP studs, MTW Stage 2 Turbo, Riff Raff boots, Warren Built trans, PMF traction bars ,4 inch straight pipe, Sinister EGR delete, S&B CAI, N-fab bars, level kit, 5% limo tint, 35 Toyos and 20s, Recon smoked everything, Harley headlights, 5k HID's, Camlocker toolbox, lots more

Yup, get rid of the Hypermax junk and slap a custom tune on with an SCT tuner and you won't believe the difference. The egr delete won't get you any more power but is a really good idea anyway for the health of your truck.
