I'll give you that it does flare shift at times..and i know it is not the best for the tranny. I also know that bang for buck it work really well, were you get the gauges and the turbo timer.
My experince with SCT has not been a good one. There customer service is sh*t and the tuner that has the display on it is the hardest the find a place to mount that i have seen.
I'm not trying to pick a fight it just seem that the SCT lovers are alot more out spoken then the rest of us. I'm not saying that Edge is great just that for the money the tuner is a good one.
On a side note are you saying that all selectable tuners are bad? What about Banks ^ gun it seem the be the safest and most thought out system on the market..
I don't want to fight either, I just want to lay the facts out.
I understand if you had a bad experience with SCT, but please don't judge all of SCT by getting a can tuned SCT, I know sometimes their customer service isn't top notch (no excuses).
I hate the live wire as much as you do, it simply sucks, but it is what it is, as i said before, some have had great luck with it and other, not so much.
On the Edge, i will admit, the gauges are nice as is the turbo timer, this is why I typically sell quite a few SCT X3 devices combined with the edge insight, then you get the BEST of both worlds, the power of a custom tuned SCT and the gauges to monitor basically everything.
Edge is great for the money, but honestly in the long run it will cost the average user more money, when you factor in shot trans and blown HG's
And yes, 100% I will say ALL shift the fly tuners are a bad idea when it comes to a 6.0.
Custom tuning is where its at 100%, no one offers that, full transmission control, some claim it but the only one who truly offers it and can mike fine adjustments with line pressure,etc,etc..you guessed it SC. Who else has something that offers custom tunes to support larger turbo's or larger injectors, can control cylinder pressure, disable( I said disable not clear) possible check engine lights from removing an EGR system, or running a non-VGT turbo,etc,etc. Any other 6.0 made 1000 hp other then the ones tuned with a SCT, for that matter, anyone made 500+ with anything other then a custom tuned SCT? I am talking on the dyno or track times to back up 500hp..
