ah k then i wouldnt do an SCT for your year truck... SCT is mostly used on 6.0L engines.... i would def do a DP or TS chip.. our 7.3L seem to do better with them... and i wouldnt worry about studs if your just gonna be running a ship intake and exhaust.... if you got a bigger turbo no sticks and a new HPOP then i would start worrying usually around 400hp to the wheels
