There fast! Buddies stock dmax will stay right next to my other buddies 03 6.0 with nothing but an sct running the canned extreme tune.

All dmaxes are fast, even stock ones... It has something to do with the trucks being built light and crappy...

Actually i think its a rumor about Duramaxs being so much lighter than Superdutys. My buddies 02 2500HD with 4 inch lift and 35s with 20s weighs 7850lbs. My 05 F250 leveled on 35s and 20s also, weighs 7820lbs. Both was weighed on a CAT certified scale. I understand his is lifted but it still weighed 30lbs more.

Injectors turbo tranny etc from what I gather just a tune on a 6.0 the most people see is between 420 - 460 a duramax with built tranny and lift pump can see 550 that's a pretty big difference to make up for

How deep are you're pockets? You could do a power max, injectors, Ficm tune, meth, but with all that new hp/tq you may need a built transmission soon as well

This is true. The actual Duramax motor can do 550hp on stock turbo and stock injectors with just a lift pump and EFI live tuned. Now the tranny won't hold and the tie rods and center link won't take a 4 wheel drive launch with that kind of power. So the money they spend trying to make the truck handle the motor, we spend making the motor make that kind of power. Our drivetrain will take it. Stock. I say try someone else custom tune on your SCT. A new tune is cheap (40-50 bucks) and it might give you the power your looking for.
