New to the Forum

Just bought a new 07 F250 Lariat - Highline Package - 4x4, Extended Cab Short Bed -

I have had various Ford Pick Ups - F150's with 5.4's, F250 with V10 and a F350 Dually with a 7.3 PSD.

This truck, is by far, the most solid truck I have driven. I will be using it for a daily driver, and also to tow my race car trailer locally - the 5.4 was pitiful, felt unsafe even though we were under the max trailer load.

I would like to add a programmer - have read many good things about the SCT XCal - exhaust, and intake. I have seen that the 06 and 07 SCT's don't have the same hp or torque resultas as the earlier 03 -05 models - can someone tell me why?
