6.0 6 speed tuners

Every time there is a discussion on which tuner is the best it always comes back to the custom tunes. Most of the justification for this is that the transmission controls are really a must and really help out the longevity and drive ability of the truck.

People have asked about the convenience of the Edge system and being able to adjust on the fly and the response is "it will burn your tranny, you want a custom sct with tranny controls."

So, to a guy that has a 6 speed, what are the advantages to going with a custom tune vs. something like the edge?

I am not going to be racing my rig. I want mild power increase, better economy and reliability. I like the edge because of its on the fly adjustments and the fact that it has so many features. I really like the idea of the A2 and its navigation system along with the other options.

I know it is expensive compared to the custom tunes. I can get nice guages and a custom tune for probably less price.

Just wanting to pick the brains of the guru's. Am wanting to do something as my waranty is soon coming to an end and want expert advise on what to do.

Thanks

Trapper

The A2 is a nice unit with some cool features. The edge takes stock signals and modifies them to make more power. The SCT actually re-programs the perameters making it able to create more power safer.
With that said, there are a lot of people that have run the edge and liked the power it produced and with the hand shaker the tranny isn't an issue anymore. It's definetly nice having all the quages in one spot and with the A2 the gps and back up camera would be pretty cool.

The SCT will give you more power, and with more mods you can change the SCT to work with them. The edge cant do things like raiseing the rev limiter, changing the idle, changing how the fuel comes on etc...

trapper,
coming from a guy with the six speed the sct is the way to go. there was a noticable increase in the mpg, you can have the truck programed the way you want it to be with the help of a knowledgable vender and the power is just unbelievable. i know you said the power wasn't that important but let me just say anything that can spin the tires on an 8200lb dually from 1st thru 4th is impressive. i got mine from dj and they were great people to deal with will buying it and after that to fine tune it. and the pillar guages always look better. hoped this helped you.

Completely agree with Blizzard. It sounds simple to just settle for one that will just work, but trust me, as the bug bites harder, the SCT is upgradeable to keep that itch scratched. I'm also a big fan of Quadzilla products. That's the only two I would consider because of the ease of upgrading now or later. And these two work really well with the manual tranny for adding low-end responce.
