Need Advice on SCT Tuner SF3

I got an SCT SF3 tuner from a friend. I already have intake, and straight exhaust. Has anyone heard anything good or bad about these. I tow 10,000 LBS. And set it to tow mode, but there's no info on HP of Torque ratings. I see a huge difference but I also want to be reliable. Here's a link to the tuner SCT Automotive Performance Products

they are the best tuners for the 6.0 .......if you dont have head studs you'll be ok as long as you dont go ripping around all the time ......get yourself some guages so you can monitor your egt's and you should be ok .....alot of people get custom tunes for them witch makes a big diffrence ......but im sure alot of other people will chime in too .....so good luck and have fun

gauges for sure...I would not run any tuner without at least having gauges, especially if you are towing with it.

another thing, if you call Innovative diesel, get the street/tow tune, you can tow 10K with 400HP.....not a bad deal, there man.

Why not just put Tony Wildman tunes on that SCT and call it a day?

innovative has pretty good tunes for the 7.3L....

but...
with the 7.3L you have the option of going with a on the fly switchable chip.... with that SCT youll have to do the whole loading and unloading process....

up to you

but not matter what you need gauges...
