Which Programmer???

Hi everyone,
I'm new to this, just bought a 06 6.0L and really like it. Hearing so many people talk about chipping and getting better mpg and power makes me think about going that route also. I was thinking about getting something that will give me the options of changing the shift pressure and points for towing and to get better mpg when not towing. And also I don't really want to spend $ modding the exhaust if possible. What programmer would be the best for me??
Thanks!!

Search "SCT", they are the only chip to use on the 6.0's to get the best performance, along with the SCT, you will also need gauges and a better flowing exhaust

What about the cortex by superchips? They say shift points can be changed.

I don't really want to mod my exhaust or intake, is it safe to run the sct?

yeah gauges are always a plus, the stock intake flows a ton of air so you dont need to mess with that. Getting rid of the cat or muffler will help the stock exhaust breath alot better but an exhuast is the best way to go.
