i can assure you that the majority of the people here are not using that programmer... the only thing i recommend for a 6.0L is a custom tuned SCT and a set of gauges.... like this: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning/ Gauge Combo Kit

trust me its the best thing you can do to your truck

I switched from Diablosport to SCT and there is no comparison....custom SCT shifts better has more power and better fuel mileage(for me at least).
Also custom tuners give way better customer service.

I can speak from experience here. RUN, do not walk, as fast as you can away from the Diablo and get you an SCT with custom tunes. Yes they make good power but they will destroy your heads and tranny in the process. They say the newer models are better but, personally I would not take the chance. When it comes to the 6.0L, IMHO there is nothing better for the motor or the tranny than custom tuning with the SCT. Oh and don't forget the gauges. A nice turbo back 4" exhaust goes well with it and while you are at it, get rid of that kitty and muffler! You will love the whistle of that 03 turbo!
