SCT= No power

got my new sct programmer x3 power flash and installed it today. Called sct and they walked me through it. I really thought it would have more power... I put it on performance with firm shifts, its faster then stock, but my bully dog power pup seemed to do better even on a lower setting. maybe i got the settings wrong. any help!!!!HELP!!!!!

I HAVE HEARD ABOUT "HOT" tunes and even some that can really damage your truck. I had the power pup and it worked great. I sold it thinking it was the problem, but discovered it was a turbo issue. so, I bought the SCT because everyone said they are great for the 6.0. now, I just thought i would get more out if it.....

You need custom tunes. There are a few different vendors on the .org that do custom tuning. You will be amazed once you get some of the custom tunes loaded up.

Custom tunes are probably just as or safer than the canned tunes.

Call innovative and talk to Eric or Tedd. Tell them what you plan on doing with the truck. What kind of mods you have, tire size and the like. They will talk to you and help you decide what tunes to get. I recommend getting Xtreme street or Xtreme race. Those two tunes should put you at roughly 415 RWHP. And a tow tune
