SCT tuner question

I haven't looked into SCT too much so I am wondering if there's a certain model to get or is there just one? I've been told SCT was the tuner to get for my 6.0...Who should I go to for the tuner with good prices and customer service?
Thanks guys,
PONSI

you wanna get teh Xca 3.... it is def the tuner to get...
you def wanna get custom tunes... dont just get the tuner and use the generic tunes.... their are quite a few diff excellent tunes out their....

my choice is Innovative diesel.... the customer service is great.... this is the tuner you want: Stealth Automotive. SCT Xcallibrator3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning

i also noticed from your sig that you dont have gauges so that is def something you should do before you get the tuner or at the same time...we also offer a Xcal 3 and gauge combo:
Stealth Automotive. SCT Xcallibrator3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning/ Gauge Combo Kit

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

-Raul

I agree with Raul, The X3 is great. Innovative makes good tunes, DJ's does as well. I have not tried Innovative tunes yet but want to as soon as I figure out who I can get them through.

Definitely get the gauges, I have ISSPro and love them!

The SCT X3 with custom tunes is the way to go. Great power and safe temps. Engine also seems to run a little smoother than before. MPG went up also, and I'm running the street tune. Haven't done the math yet, but I'll post when I do.

I agree, the X3 with custom tunes is the way to go. I have a 05 Excursion running ID's street tune. I recently went to North Carolina and was seeing 19.8 mpg hand calculated. Innovative Diesels customer support is great.

Raul its funny how you are usually the first to answer these questions, and it never hurts to have a web link.
