I have seen a couple of people running them on their 6.0s that liked them but I have never held one so I cant say. I know Rudys has them so give them a call up and I believe they will give you their honest opinion

Spartan and H&S are the most popular tuners for the 6.4.

Not everyone wants a Spartan or H&S, the SCT is a good product as there are many companies that make tunes for the SCT

That tuner works great on one of our 6.0's but I wouldn't use it on a 6.4 because it isn't delete compatible. I have an SCT 9625OR that is delete compatible for a 6.4 for sale. PM me for price.

I have the Livewire TS 5015 that I'm running on my 2008 6.4. It works nicely besides for reading EBP wrong and having the kPa and PSI values switched for by Boost readings. I had EBP issue verified(unit was reading 52 psi and ford scan was reading 13 psi) I have DPF and CAT removed. I'm getting ready to do the EGR delete as well.

I like the fact that the unit turns off and on with the truck and it automatically adjust the light levels with an ambient light sensor. The touch screen is fine but does take a while to get used to it.

The guy I bought it from sent me five new custom tunes where the exhaust sensors and egr sensors dont have to be used which is nice.

Also the tuning seems good, lots of power and no smoke. I havent messed much with tune 4 or 5 because I havent upgraded intake yet. I tried for a 15 minute or so test drive and sucked the filter minder in and set a code due to not enough airflow(which they tell you not to run those tunes without stage 2).

On tune 3, fuel mileage is superb. 17.8ish city and 22.5ish highway.

Tune 2, fuel mileage about 13ish city and 18ish highway.

Tune 1, same as original fuel mileage.

I will tell you this as well, your boost will increase. On tune 3 i max boost at 42 PSI. On tune 4 I boosted to 48 PSI. On tune 5 I hear it can boost to 53 PSI. Tunes 1 boosts similar to stock and tune 2 i believe it will max about 37 psi.
