You have more options then just TW.

Dp tuner has the new F6 chip out that you can download tunes to without removing the chip from the truck. Its a bit $pricey, but worth it in my opinon

They just email you new tunes whenever you want them, and you put them onto the chip.

Also have to keep in mind the differences in the engines, namely the fact the 7.3 is HEUI and the 6.4 is Commonrail. The turbos probably dont hurt either...

For an electronical pump diesel, you cant beat a Commonrail.

But they are working on tunes for the 6.0, and its an HEUI. I can't imagine to many guys would spend the cabbage for a Phalanx for a 5 year old truck. I'm not saying people wouldn't, just that that market would be very small comparatively. Plus you already have so many options. The basic flip chip is so convenient, and easy to install. I bet the 6.0 and 6.4 guys would love to have a 450 dollar flip chip option.

Yes I would. And Spartan has tunes for the 6.0 just not for the DashDaq/Phalanx device.
