i tried their tuner on my truck and hated it....

honestly.. why waste your money on something like that... just buy youself a custom tuned SCT and be done with it...

remove that banks goo... the SCT will out perform the SCT and GM tuner you want too put on...

you also need a set of gauges as well...

if you need any help with the SCT let me know....

I got one a couple years back and was so unimpressed by both the programer and the service that I refuse to use any of their products ever again. First the progamer they sent me was the wrong one, then the replacement was already fried when I got it and to top it of they tried to stiff me on the refund!

I know that stacking on a 6.0L is not safe or recommended and I think that you should not do it. There are better products out there, don't get sucked in by advertisments.

ok...thanks for all the help.....so about the sct....i ve heard alot about them but the only reason i went with banks was because i liked the safety inssue. i know i would need gaueges for the sct but i do not want to put on head studs or do i want to blow a head gasket. Is the sct going to be an issue that i would have to watch all the time to make sure im not going to blow a head gasket? and how much hp and tq does it add?

im sorry but you have to watch your gauges even with a banks tuner...

in my opinion you need gauges with a stock truck.. i have seen stock trucks have issues with heads... its the draw of the luck with the 6.0L.. some have problems and some dont...

so yes with the SCT you do have to monitor your gauges.. but you should be doing that with any tuner not just SCT...

the custom tunes will be far more safer for your transmission too... the banks does squat for your transmission...

if your looking for a combo kit we have one here SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning/ Gauge Combo Kit
