Question PPE for 6.0

I Just ordered one of these and was wondering if theres any one else out there that has one and how they like it, and what the best setting would be for best performance and mileage combined? no SCT talk here please, I already had 1.

I'm here but all of the 6 tranny's had stock issues. The PPE runs fine. I usually run them from 4 to 6. Here's the breakdown on the trannys. First 3 got replaced because of shift flairs. They were fine besides the shift flairs. On the 4th one the pins fell out of the reverse planetary gear. On the 5th one the planetary broke. Number 6 still has shift flairs but now I'm over it. Truck was stock when these broke.

Well i think the PPE tuner is GREAT!!!!!...................for duramaxes. But hey you enjoy your tuner. And make sure you take it easy on your tranny. Its not gonna like you much. At night its gonna crawl out of your truck and "slip" your wrists! Get it! slit,slip, cause thats what the tranny will be doing after so much power being thrown at it.

i had the sct, and out the hole power was great, then nothing after 40mph, than watched the fuel guage drop. i wanted something different. im not looking forward of hearing of these tranny problems. i know that 212 hp tune will testroy my truck, but its nice to have. and as of your friend with the ppe..... i hope it has more power than that. the sct comes with a 125 hp tune, the ppe has a 212 hp tune if you got the balls to run it. i dno. thats why im here to ask questions. what level did you have the tuner on when you fried your trannys? 05f250.

actually tried it in my buddies truck. And I have tried it in another buddies dmax. Good power just the shifting was a little weird. But it doesn't tune the tranny from what I've heard. So why take chances and just go with what's been proven.
