Question I need some assistance...

Hey guys, first off... I LOVE THIS FORUM. It has helped with a lot so far and I really appreciate the fast responses and just the over all generosity of you all.

Now, my problem...

I have an 06 6.0 F350 Single Wheel and I put 4" Turbo back exhaust with no cat and put on a S&B CAI with the Zoodad Mod. I'm needing to know what I need to look into getting as far as a Tuner/Display goes. I am new to the Diesel world and want to improve MPG and Power. I don't haul a whole lot but Torque never hurt anyone either. I keep seeing all this talk on Tuners and Programmers and Tunes and it confuses the hell out me... Sorry for being ignorant but I would really appreciate it if someone could explain all those to me and what would be the best set up for me as well. I appreciate everything everyone!

SCT is the only way to go for the 6.0L

And most dealers will give you a good deal on custom tunes when you buy through them.

I suggest DJ.....thats what I run



4.5" lDr/Icon lift,...41" IROKS.....405hp & 786 Tq

The SCT is the tuner of choice for the 6.0L. Unless you go with the Livewire, which has built in gauges, you will also need gauges. Most folks will run 3 ( pyro(EGT), tranny temp, and boost). The SCT is the best tuner not only for your motor but for your tranny. There are several good tuners here on the site. Eric @ Innovative, DJ, or Matt@Spartan Diesel. I am sure there will be others along to give you their opinion. Good luck in your search for power.
