My Dad has an 03 with that tuner and he cant run the higher horse setting because the trans sounds like it wants to blow out the apart. He does run it on stock or tow and it runs fine, if you want to run a hot tune definitely recommend going with something that tunes the trans. On my truck I have ran the SCT X4 and Livewire and loved both of them.

You'll find the edge juice with attitude is not the best programmer for the 6.0L. You'll want to get an sct x4 unit and try the tunes. If you crave more power reach out to gearhead or innovative diesel and order a custom tune. Trust me the Edge unit is not the best for your truck. Edge makes an excellent monitor though and honestly is hard to beat. Their tuning is just off the shelf generic products etc.

Well as of yet I've had no issues with it taking level 5 tune I have had the engine bullet-proofed it's got 5in straight pipes the only thing I'm unsure of is like the low boost setting and which one would be the best as far as fuel economy so far just playing around with it level 3 seems to be doing the best on fuel economy I'm averaging about 17 miles per gallon

not really so much worried about adding more power more leaning towards fuel economy I originally had the CTS which I thought was really decent just didn't like that I had to go through all the steps to switch it from one tune to the next and I do have a light ficm tune in it as well

I can second Gearhead tuning, have always been happy with their tuning and customer service. You wont regret it, definitely worth taking a look.

The steps are necessary for your trucks long term reliability. The 6.0L has a transmission computer and the trucks computer. The sct flash tuners reprogram both and allow relearn to start. You should drive your truck gently for a few days if you change tunes with it. The edge tuner has the advantage of shift on the fly tuning but at a great cost. The transmission doesn't go through the necessary steps and WILL cause issues down the road. It may takes some time with the sct tuner but its better for the 6.0L plain and simple.

Regarding fuel economy. I experimented like crazy with different tuners and chips and even had php's ficm tuner. The single best combo was the transmission tune with the sct 3015 (at the time) and the atlas 40 ficm tune. I ran the almost exact same 900 mile road trip 10+ times and tried my best to stop at same places etc. the ficm tune by itself was the biggest fuel economy improvement while NOT running an ecm tune. The atlas gives a albeit small boost in power too though.

Use the edge as a monitor and only that is you plan on keeping the truck long term.


Google it. you'll see very quickly why SCT is second to none for the 6.0L etc.
