SCT tunes question

I have an 2005 6.0 f350. Getting an SCT tuner and want tunes from eric. Wondering which ones I should get. My mods will be dual 4 inch pipes from turbo back, bullydog outlook for gauges, cold air intake.

Im gonna get the tune for TOW and Fuel mileage but for the third I wanna know how far I can go with the ford Modified head bolts. Not aprs. I don't have the cash to do apr headstuds right now so I don't want to risk blowing the head gasket. Can I do street safely without worrying about head gasket? Or can I move up to xtreme street. Thanks

List of erics:
Xtreme Race- 420-440rwhp/760-780rwtq - Converter locked in all gears.
Xtreme Street- 420-430rwhp/730-760rwtq- Not recommended for towing.
Street- 400rwhp/670rwtq- Tow up to 10k lbs.
Tow- 310rwhp/560rwtq- Towing over 10k lbs up to the maximum of the truck.
Economy- Mileage program only.

i run the street, extreme street, and extreme race w/ n20. thats what you should get but not the n20 one. remember you have the canned tunes for tow and economy. i run my truck on extreme race w/ n20 all the time in the summer and its fine. my bigger rear end and my truck being light isnt gonna hurt it as much on extreme settings. you would get the best mileage in the extreme street imo. anyway your gonna love his tunes no matter what.

ok get a sct xcal 3 with custom tunes. its like $80 extra for the extreme files. so like $400 you get it all. canned tunes are economy, tow, street. and custom tunes are the extreme tunes and you can get them tweaked for your truck. understand?

Eric has sent me Street and Extreme Street for my LIVEWIRE...
A point of interest, if you keep your foot out of it, Eric says the Extreme Street will give you the best fuel economy, OK, I buy that... But:Do you think the extra wear and tear on the engine is worth it? An Extreme Street Tune would HAVE to have more wear on the engine....

And do any of you have an idea on how to tell WHAT tune you are running, in the case of swapping between say Street and a Tow Safe Tune.. Hooked up to a 4 ton trailer it might be hard to tell. Surely there is a way to tell where you left the LIVEWIRE tune at... Surely....?

I can tell which tune I'm running just by driving it. I have aggressive tow, street and extreme race. I don't see how a tune can cause any more wear on your engine, unless your dogging it and not taking care of it I've run my truck on the street tune for most of my trucks life, and had zero problems.

So what your saying is Its best to go with EXTREME so i get it customized to my truck even without head studs? Otherwise It won't be customized to my truck with the canned tunes hey.

I don't bag on my truck max period i'll hold the pedal down to the floor is 3-5 seconds. Always watch egt's and boost

Yes. I don't have studs and am somewhat easy on the go pedal. If you drive it like you say, then you won't have any problems, and your going to love driving your truck :burnout
