PERFORMANCE TUNING

2006 F350 Regular Cab XLT dually.

The truck has ARP headstuds, ford blue OEM head gaskets, updated stc fitting, new high pressure oil rail standpipes, RCD egr delete with up pipe, air raid intake, 5 inch turbo back exhaust, and a sinister coolant filter. No guages no tunes. What do you suggest me buy? Livewire or gauges?

I personally like having my SCT X3 and a Edge CTS as gauges. That way if anyone breaks in and takes the CTS ( which has happened to me) I still have the tuner.

Another option is the SCT X4 tuner and a Dashboss. I will say though that the Livewire TS is an awesome tuner/monitor.

you will find a mixed bag on tuners/guages vs the livewire.

Even thought quirky, I like my livewire and PHP tunes.

X3 and Edge CS for me. I like the low profile look and simplicity of the CS. As for tuning my tunes from Drew at Backroads performance have been the best I have run on the truck.

I gotta vote for the SCT X4 and Edge CTS. The CTS is the best gauge IMHO.

I like my A-Pillar EGT/Boost/Fuel Press. gauges, along with the BPD Scangauge II programmed with all the parameters to watch on the 6.0.
