Im ready for some performance....

well let me start out by saying that this is my first fourm. And I'm more than positive what I'm about to ask has been asked 100 times. My daily driver is an 04 f-250 6.0l. My main goal is for the truck to have great performance, great fuel mileage. Nothing extreme I don't sled pull or race unless I'm messing around light to light with a ricer(which isn't often). I do have plans on pulling a larger pull behind.(20ft) I do pull a goose next once in a great while for my wild hunting adventures. Most of the weight would be the trailer. I do take long trips quiet often.300-800 miles oneway.
I am taking one more step and adding an airfilter this weekend an exhaust will come soon mbrp 4" single exit. My main concern is a chip. I was considering a superchips cortex. Any opinions on a good Eco chip/tune for a resonable price?

Thank you,

First off welcome to the org. The best tuner out for the 6.0 would be a custom tuned sct. dont forget guages, pyro,trans,boost to keep track of your egt's

Thank you, with the which I considering more as I read recent fourms, are the "preloaded" tunes pretty good they won't damage my rig?

no the canned tunes won't hurt your rig, but with a custom tune, the tuner can match your mods on your rig. they can write it for minor performance if you are concerned with hurting your rig

No body here could have said it better.

And if anyone of 6.0l knowledge replies to your question, They are going to duplicate Mikes answer.

SCT.

Good luck and Welcome to the ORG.

to the ORG. The OEM filter on the 6.0s flows just fine for anything under 500hp...which you will be. Save you money there and just do a Zoodad mod. SCT is the way to go for tunes. Get ya a pyro and some exhaust and you will be good.

Welcome to the ORG! I am in full agreement with the replies above. I have done quite a bit of research on the performance end of owning a diesel and there is no need to spend the $$ for a cold air intake, just do the ZOODAD mod and that part is set. I have looked at a bazillion tuners and chips and the SCT custom tuned by ID is the only way to go. The exhaust and guages must be your first priority because if your EGT's get too high you will melt that 6.0 and there is no fun in that.
