Need your help!-Bullydog GT Diesel Tuner on the Ford PSD 6.0L?

Hey everyone,
Please forgive me if I am not using this forum right. I just joined and I need some advice. I recently traded my '08 Dodge Ram 3500 6.9L Cummins in on an awesome and well maintained 06 Ford F-250 with the 6.0L PSD motor. I was a bit hesitant after all that I have read regarding some of the problems the 6.0L had however I had the opportunity to speak with the previous owner of the F-250 and learned that this guy meticulously maintained the truck and never had any issues. Anyways, I love the For F-250 to death and would never go back to a Dodge. I ran a Bullydog Diesel Triple Dog GT Diesel Gauge/Tuner (40420) on the Dodge without any problems. However I have heard that running a Bullydog on my Ford F-250 with the 6.0L can cause issues. The previous owner stated that when he hooked up a Bullydog to the truck, it went thru injectors like candy (all of which he had Ford replace because he programmed the PCM back to factory and it was still under warranty!!). I am not sure if iut was the type of Bullydog he hooked up or if it's just the Bullydog in general. So, my question os: CAN THE 6.0L HANDLE THE BULLYDOG GT DIESEL TUNER (MODEL #Bullydog Diesel Triple Dog GT Diesel Gauge/Tuner (40420)Bullydog Diesel Triple Dog GT Diesel Gauge/Tuner (40420)??? Thanks for your opinion.

"shift on the fly" programmers are not any good for the trans, this will not allow the trans to handle the extra power.

One of the safest for the 6.0 motor and 5r100 trans is a SCT with custom tunes. And a monitor solution like a Edge Insight CS/CTS or ScangaugeII is highly recommended.

There are steps that need to be done to have a trouble free 6.0, here is a good starter link for you to read.

Forgot to mention, if you intend to go with a SCT, you will need to have your PCM reflashed back to stock. Bully dog products leave in some of the parameters after returning back to stock, this will interfere with the SCT programming.
