Chips

OK guys I am so confused there are so many different makes and model of these chips. I have a buddy that is running a Supperchip and he swore by it. There are a lot of you talk about SCT and say it is a good one. I plan on putting the gages on first. What gages do you recommend? I do about equal amounts of all of these Towing, economy, Balls to wall. I have learned a lot on this site lessening and asking in such a short time. This is my first Powerstroke .I want to see this 6.0 push out some smoke.Or is it too soon it has 15k on it now. THANKS GUYS

You should be OK to go with a tuner. The superchips is an off the wall tuner, the SCT is set up for your truck. Once you get the SCT, you can get whatever programs you want, if you want three different tow tunes, you can do that, or one of each kind. Once you get the programmer, you send you numbers back to who ever you got it from, and they will set up a set of tunes, just for you and how your truck is set up. Def go with the guages, but I think that the SCT is the only way to go when you have a 6er.

you're smart if you spend your money on your gauges first. Sounds like you're on the right track. If your truck is 05 or newer you should have a factory boost gauge, some say its not the most accurate, but according to my quad commander mine is. You definately need a EGT and a tranny temp gauge. I love my commander, gives you everything you need in one neat little package as far as your gauges go. If you want to save a few bucks I'd suggest EGT and Tranny temp analog gauges on with an A pillar mount. Next I'd also splurge for a turbo back exhaust, 4" 409SS, pick your brand. I love my MBRP, but there are others just as good I suppose. It will help bring those EGT's down a bit when you chip... Now for the really fun stuff. A custom tuned SCT is the only way to go IMO. I had a superchips on my last truck, it wasn't bad at all. Made decent power. But I just bought my SCT from DJ's and let me tell you its night and day! For about the same amount of money too. Trust me on this one. You owe it to yourself to try it. Hope this helps and good luck!
