Hands down, a SCT device for the 6.0, with custom tunes.

SCT makes a LiveWire TS that is a tuner/monitor combo, which holds canned and custom tunes.

Then there are the handheld SCT devices like X3 that holds only custom tunes and the SF3 that holds canned and custom tunes. One of these with a separate monitor also work good.

It's a matter of personal preference if you want a combo or separate tuner/monitor. They all have there pros/cons. Either way, it would be wise to get a Fuel psi and EGT hooked up, either to the digital monitor or on separate analog gauges.

You can read up on the LiveWire TS on this link.

And for the stand alone monitors you can check out this link.

Performance and tuning will be the same in all SCT devices with custom tunes and canned tunes.

It's the monitor capabilities that will differ. There are some things that the LiveWire TS will and won't do when compared to the other monitor devices (DashBoss, Edge Insight CS/CTS, ScangaugeII, Torque). Same can be said when comparing all the monitors to each other, they all have there give and take.

Any of these monitors will read the basic PCM PID's, some will read more enhanced PID's than the others. Some will allow you to datalog, some won't. Some will limit you to only watching 4 PID's (Scangauge). Some will let you add external sensor for EGT and Fuel psi, which can't be read thru the OBDII because the 6.0 doesn't have factory sensors for EGT or Fuel psi.

All these monitor will read just about the same amount of PID's. It really comes down to how much you want to spend, and if you want the extra features from that device.
