To TUNE or Not to TUNE...

Help me out guys..... I need decision maker. I want to burn some money.....currently have 03 6.0 bone stock except for cat and muff delete. First my driving habits. I dont want to race nor try and burn tires. I do pull a 36ft 5th wheel once in a blue moon. But then again Id like to get a little more pep out of the truck or maybe I just think I do. Anyway i was contemplating on getting the EDGE INSIGHT CST just for monitoring. Or a SCT X3 from Innovative with the custom tunes....in which I know I can datalog and read all parimeters that the Edge Insight will read. I just wont have a cool looking digital gauge setup on my dash if I go with the SCT. What do yall think?? I have 157k miles on the truck now and have never ever once had to have truck in shop for anything. Your input would be helpful in my decision making.....THANKS

Custom tunes and some gauges, your truck will like it more than the edge.

i would have to agree... a custom tuned SCT with a Edge CS or CTS tuner is all you need... we can give you a custom deal package on the setup that would save you some money over buying them separate if your interested
