SCT? or EDGE?

i currently own an edge attitude with lvl. 6 and i thinking about changing to and x3 with custom tunes.. whats the input? i like my edge but my buddy has an sct and thinks it does better.. i pull equipment on a gooseneck and when i run in 6(which i dont often) i get well of 1500egt's when i run in the tow tune (lvl. 2) i can hover around 1300, but i dont have all the hp/ft. lb. id like. think SCT would do better?? thanks

custom tuned SCT's are WAY better than edge, the only good thing that is for is blowing out trannies becuse they don't tune to your tranny so it kills it
Guarantee almost everyone on here will say SCT because they are the best chips for 6.0's

I will also say that a custom tuned SCT is the best thing on the market at this time for the 6.0L. It not only tunes your motor but it also tunes the tranny. You can't go wrong with it. I say ditch the Edge and get you a SCT. Listen to your buddy and besides would a granny lie to you? LOL

SCT is the way to go. I ran Extreme Street on a 6 hour trip this weekend up into NY at 75mph at got 22.8mpg. Thats a bonus of at least 4mpg over stock, not to mention the power.

sct is the way to go when it comes to the 6.0l but have you thought about getting the spartan for the 6.0?
