SCT and Innovative Diesel tunes.
Spartan has free tunes. But Innovative has better transmission support.

when you decide what tuner you want to buy from, they'll send you the unit, you then take the unit and read the trucks strategy, once you have the strategy you give it back the guy writing the customs tunes for you, then once they're done he emails them to you and you upload them to the tuner. or you can send the tuner back to him and have them put them on the tuner, or if you can find someone that has a SCT tuner thats local, they can read your strategy for you then just give it the custom tuner and he can do it all at his shop and send the unit out with the custom tunes already on it. The way the tuner works, is you plug it into the trucks OBDII port located on the drivers side of the truck right underneath the dash, thats where you program the truck from, once it's plugged in, it's really easy to navigate

I must agree with all of the above... SCT with custom tunes is the only way to go for the 6.0L. It not only tunes your motor but your tranny as well. If there is such a thing as "safe power", the SCT would be just that.
