cant go wrong with a custom tuned SCT by Innovative and some Autometer Gauges...

custom tunes are def the way to go when it comes to a tuner... and SCT is by far one of the best tuners for the 6.0L

please let me know if you have any questions... i will be more than happy to answer them

You could do a edge w/ atitude it would give you everything you are asking for. I am not a fan of shift on the fly though, it is very hard on your electronic Tranny. Edge is running a sale right now if you are interested PM me for a price. You could do a SCT and get some custom tunes and do a pillar mount w/ your gauges, That would be the all around best option for your truck.

anything can be done with custom tunes.... that is def something that Innovative can do to your tow tune.... the majority of people on here that have 6.0's run SCT custom tunes...

The ONLY tuner you will every want for your 6.0L is the SCT with custom tuning. Please do not even entertain the thought of an Edge if you value your tranny. Of course that is just my opinion, of course. There is a reason that most everyone who runs a tuner on their 6.0L, runs the SCT and that reason is because it is the best choice for the motor and the tranny. I am sure there will be others who come along that will have the same thing to say as myself. Good luck in your search for power.
