If you are looking for more power and milage while towing and still want to be safe. I would look at the SCT with a custom tow tune and gauges. I personally have no experience with the Striker 1 so I cannot comment on it, but I know what the SCT does as far as your motor and tranny tuning. Make sure before you make a purchase that you do some hardcore research about the effects it would have on your tranny.

I know DiscountPowerParts has a line on Striker, but I dont think they have sold any of it. I couldnt tell you if its good or bad. Being that you have a 6.0L I too would go with a custom SCT. If you have an automatic transmission you will thank me later. Adding any power without boosting preasures in the transmission is a recipe for disaster. The 5R110 is a great transmission...dont abuse it.

The SCT is more money, but I'm sure your truck wasn't cheap either. It has always bothered me that Airlines buy planes from the lowest bidder... it just doesnt make sense lol.

sct

I want something that I can remove when I have to take it to a dealer.
Dont want the man on me about aftermarket parts. Why is ford so strict. Chevy is not nearly as strict on the duramax. Even though it is a pile of crap. Had two I should now by now.
