Willy4x4-

For the 6.0l diesel we have the custom tuned SCT X3. We have tow tunes for different weights and economy tunes for fuel economy gains. My 05 Ex has a consistant hand calculations of 19 mpg on the hwy and mixed in town driving 17-18 mpg. Having owned 2 6.0'ls, Jody takes into consideration the infamous pukeing of coolant. His tunes are very conservatiive. If you experience this you may already have stretched head gaskets and they may need to be replaced. Both of our 6.0's have never leaked coolant out the degas bottle. Stretched hg's seem to be an issue due to excessive heat. Jody's tunes run cooler then stock.

If you have any more questions don't hestitate to email us.
