6.0 programmers

I have a 2003 6.0 Powerstoke 6-speed. All I hear about is the SCT, but Ive also heard about tranny troubles with them, but I have a 6-speed so Im not worried about that. So Im pretty interested in SCT. Ive also looked at PPE, how are they? I also have a friend with an Edge Juice Platnium for only $500, and another friend with a Superchip for only $250. I know they will all give me good power output but I love smoke, will they all give me good smoke with a straight pipe? What should I do? P.S. Im on a tight budget.

Go with the SCT. Hands down the best power. If you want smoke that is easily adjustable. Let us know if we can help.

If my memory serves me right, my Power Pup is one of my smokiest programmers I own, and it is far from the fastest Oh, and I did the update recently, still smokey

So guess you should quit taking things out of context. : Bannon stated he wanted smoke, all that requires is adjusting the file to not limit fuel based on boost. This is even an option on the Edge.

Not that the Bully Dog is not a good unit (I like it on the common rail dodges) but it would never be my first choice for the 6.0L.

Just the simple truth

that's the thing about the sct, it can be made to do what YOU want. If you like tons of smoke, we can do it, if you like NO SMOKE we can do it, from just a mild power increas to maximum power the sct can do it. another plus is if you do injectors or a turbo later down the road the sct can be tuned for the pugrades
