Go with a SCT with custom tunes. You will get great fuel economy and excellent drivabilty and power when you want it

Spent 200 on a used SCT X Cal 2 online then paid 30.00 per tune from Cale... Cheaper yet custom also!!

I am sure Cale can set up an economy tune...

THANKS HANK

I would actually go to the 6.4 forum and post that question, but I would be willing to bet in that case I think the Spartan tuner has the market on that one. Even some of the die hard SCT vendors for the 6.0 would recommend the Spartan tuner for the 6.4 engine.

FYI you have a better chance of hurting your truck with one of those plug and play units than you do with a custom tuned SCT.

Take a look through the 6.0 forums and see what the majority run. It wont be Banks, Hypertech, Edge, Bullydog or the like. I will bet on that
