1st you won't be able to use the outlook with the SCT if your outlook can monitor tranny temps. When they upgraded the outlook to handle tranny temps they took away the option "outlook w/other" from the setup screen.

2nd what gears are you running? You've got a quite a big lift that could also explain why the triple dog didn't have much balls for you. When I had the triple dog, power wasn't the issue(atleast not for me) it was the shifting. So I'm willing to bet that the lift had something to do with that.

3rd get rid of the K&N intake. You really don't need an intake on a 6.0 period until you start making well over 500 hp and you won't get there with tunes alone. Besides that, K&N is perhaps the worst known a/m intake for the 6.0.

4th stacking really doesn't work on the 6.0 either. You'll just be wasting your money in that little endeavor. Those that think it is doing something on a 6.0 I'm willing to bet more then likely it's in their head more then it is anything else.

Instead of completely getting rid of the K&N Intake, you could buy one of Volants PowerCore filters to put on it which is what the 6.0 comes from the factory installed. A very good filter made by Donaldson, which is also the manufacturer for M1A1 tank filters.
