What Programmer to go with...hmmm. any ideas?

I just sold my 2005 6.0 and purchased a 08 6.4. Im curious on programmers and tunes. I love my SCT in the 6.0 but i dont know much about the 6.4 as far as tuners go. Im stuck between Spartan Phalanx, H&S Black Maxx, or the SCT TSX. Any ideas or info would be great! Thanks.

Don't want to be rude or anything but there are a bunch of threads on this question. Use the search button or to end your search just do the mods I have in my sig and be done and very happy with it.

Yup very happy with it but I'm a horsepower junkie so I'm probably going to do more mods to my truck. Also with this setup I'm gettting 23 or so mpg on the hwy.

I got my stuff from Rudy's Diesel Performance. The best price I could fine for all my stuff. Cost less then 2k dollars. Talk to aaron there. There was free shipping and of course no tax. I got all my parts within 5 days. The CAI came first, then exhaust then tuner. Kinda weird cause he sends everything out the sametime. Hell I got the CAI the very next day.

You'll love the Spartan. No issues with mine at all in 10,000 km, and saw a increase in mileage from 12.5 mpg hwy to 16 mpg city/hwy on the 210 tune. I think I'll get around 18-20 mpg hwy with the 250 tune but it shifts too hard for me for a daily driver.

That is all I run is the 250 tune. I hardly even notice the shifts anymore. I'm so used to it cause I drive my truck all the time. I got the truck June 3rd I believe and I already have 8k miles on it. Got it with 3 miles brand new. I'm thinking about buying the other tunes and run the 275 tune as a daily.

SCT TSX with Custom Tunes from Innovative Diesel, AFE Stage II Si Intake, and 4" MBRP Exhaust with DPF/DOC Delete.

Eric's Extreme Race is the fastest tune out there, not to mention it's making 600 HP on fuel only. The Spartan is great, but nothing beats a FULL custom tune.
