What to do?

I am new to the 6.0. I have an SCT with Spartan tunes on it. I have heard good things about innovative, and I am thinking about trying their tunes.

Anyways, what else do I need to do to my truck to make it run better? It has a 4 inch straighpipe on it also. Do I need an intake? elbow? What brands?

With the Spartan ultra competition tune, at WOT from 2-3 gear the truck doesn't want to shift. It will sit there and wind for about 2 or 3 seconds, then it will shift. I am losing A LOT of momentum when the truck does this. Can I adjust this with the SCT? What do I need to adjust? Just looking for some answers.

well hate to say it but if you need more yet its gonna cost a bunch cuz you need head studs before any more power is added.... then its fuel system, Regulated return, injectors, turbo, water/meth, nitrous etc.....

I would say egr delete, studs, regulated return would be a great start....

fuel system is next on my list
