No, the Diablo Predator is NOT a good tuner for a 6.0........ Never has been, never will be.

Do a quick search on this forum and you will get all the info you need. Most will tell you to go with an SCT and custom tuning.

diablos suck, we put the 100hp diablo tune in my friends 03 and innovatives 65hp tow tune in my 06 and it walked away from the 03 on the highway. diablos newest update thats out actually has nice shifting but the power isnt there. we tried the diablo in my truck to see if the 03 just didnt work well with it but my truck didnt seem to go any better.

It is not the platform but the tuner making the files. Since Diablo has no custom tuning 6.0L diesels, what everyone has said is true. Go with one who has many to compare and choose from. SCT has a large dealer database of which you should be able to find a dealer that will do a good job for you.
