Self adjustment

Just curious if anyone has any advice about semi-tuning by ones self. Things like wot shift points shift firmness and fuel delivery. Any opinions or recommendations would be a huge help I'm asking this because I can't find someone up here to do it

IMO for the price that most place charges for tunes it is well worth it to have someone else write you a tune and email it to you. For around $100 or less you can get 2 or 3 tunes written. Not many options for self tuning unless you want to buy the software to do it yourself which is not something the average person can usually do. SCT programers are most common for the 6.0... Just my 0.02

Gearhead Automotive is who I recommend..

2005 F-550 4x4 22.5's
Kelderman Air Ride
Bulletproof Diesel Remote Oil Cooler W/F550 Cooler
Bulletproof Diesel Billet Water Pump
Bulletproof Diesel Radiator
Dieselsite Wicked Wheel, Dieselsite Coolant Filter Kit
Warren Diesel 155/30, Bluespring Mod, 6.4 Banjo,
Updated STC, Turbo Feed and Drain Tubes,
PMM EGR Delete
SCT Tuner, Edge Insight w/EGT, Fuel and Oil Pressure
Tuned By MATT @ Gearhead Automotive Performance
