edge juice/attiude VS quadzilla?????

Hey there I am new to this site and also new to a diesel truck. I have a 03 6.0l and I am looking at getting a tuner, I was wanting some thoughts from you folks on witch of the 2 tuners is better or another one???? I will mainly be pulling my 36ft 5th wheel camper and some fun driving, but I am not going to be draging or anything like that.

Well my reccomendation is going to be the same as 95% of the others that will tell you which is better, so I will let them say it, I just want to say you would regret it if you put an Edge on an 03. Trust me, if you drive like most of us do you will be breaking very important and expensive parts

I agree with them. SCT is the only way to go! LIPD can also offer good tunes for your 6.0L and their service is awesome. They have treated me great!

Just thinking about the Juice w/ Attitude and it's shift flares makes me want to barf!!!!

Go with Superchips Flashpaq 1805 or a SCT tuner. I have the 1805 and it is soooo much better than the edge ever was. Shifting is excellent, firm and quick, and the response and power is noticably better.

Okay since I am new to all this and I want to get the what is good. I will mostly be pulling trailer with my truck and for right now my truck is bone stock no gauges or anything.

In doing some research I see the edge platnium has defueling, monitering system for tranny, a whole list of things, also changing settings while driving.

In reading through this thread I see the favor is SCT over anything.. How come????? Does the sct change setting on the move, if not is it an easy process to change the setting. I see in one of the threads that somebody had 9 different programs on there computer that they could up load to the tuner can you do that?

I do like the black smoke idea when you nail it.
Keep in mind this will be the only tuner that I would buy, I see some of you change, and I will not be able to do that so I want to get what is right.

the reason the sct is the only way to go is because of all the things the tuners (we) can change. It will make more power, drive better, shift better and be faster than a EDGE, if you like smoke we cna make it smoke, if you want it cleen we can make it clean. If you like a very soft shift we can do it, if you want a shift so firm it breaks your neck it can be done
I have ran many boxes/tuners on my truck and NOTHING comes close

Well my problem with the SCT is that you cant change the settings in the cab at will. I would like to be able to change it from gas saving mode to tow mode or kick butt mode without getting out of the car and opening the hood. I dont want to run around all day on a race tune, I want to be able to change the levels with the push of a button.

If not edge then what? I am looking for one that has a monitor like the A2 or the Bully Dog PMT. The livewire still wont allow you to change settings on the fly. Is there a reason why SCT has neglected to offer this? Sure having the baddest race tune is great, but why not offer the ability to change levels without popping the hood?
