Well I speak from experience, I've had both on my 6.0, SCT HANDS DOWN. The Bullydog really lacks in the transmission shifting, it gets confused between gears and just doesn't get the job done and the power is not what the SCT makes either. The SCT is NASTY on power, it screams and th etranny pops into gear very consistently. SCT ALL THE WAY.

Without head studs I dont think there is a safe programmer for the sicks-oh. As far as tranny tuning I think any of the custom tuners will be a better choice than off the shelf generic tunes.

Yeah, with a 6.0 they are only as safe as you make them. I've read of guys blowing gaskets with Banks stuff too. Even Gayle's crap can lift the 6.0 heads.
