7.3 + SCT = ???

Hey yall,

It looks like everybody seems to like DP on the 7.3's but what about SCT? Any of you running one of their tuners on a 7.3L? Tell me what you think.

Thanks,
Cliff

its not that the SCT is bad for the 7.3L.. but with the 7.3L you have the option of having a shift on the fly chip... if you get a SCT its a tuner.. so their is no shifting on the fly...

I had a superchips tuner and it was nice, but the chip is awesome with shift on the fly. On advantage the tuner has though is for reading codes.

It's also a good way to really mess up your truck if you don't know what you're doing!!
SCT is the bomb for the 6 Leakers, but for the 7.3 DP and TW are the king!!

I understand everybody likes DP but is having an SCT a bad thing? I'm looking at a 2000 7.3L that already has an SCT. It's been on there for a while.

As good as their 6.0 & 6.4 tuners are, I would think they would be pretty good on a 7.3 too?

BTW, my bosses 08 6.4 has an SCT & DPF delete. He averages 25+ MPG Runs pretty good too...

BS.

Tell him to hand calculate it. The lie-o-meter does not read right.

A custom tuned SCT works well on the 7.3 also. I ran one on mine for a long time. However the custom burned chip has advantages in the case of the 7.3. Ability to switch tunes on the fly being one. Also the chip has access to more parameters than the SCT does in the case of the 7.3.

All that being said it basically boils down to the end users preference as to how you want to go about it
