I Need A Vendor!!

Ok.. Here is the deal.. I somewhat introduced myself to the board through some of my other posts but here is a brief synopsis. I am the owner/manager of an import/sport compact appearance-performance company in Ontario, Canada. I recently purchased my first diesel vehicle ... a 2004 F350 Liarat-regular axle,Turbo Diesel,crew cab short box. I purchased the truck mainly for regular use but to specifically pull our company trailer which is a 24' enclosed car trailer. This trailer is used to transport our show vehicles along with product. The truck had 50,186KM's when purchased and now has around 53,000kms. I'm absolutely in love with the truck and never imagined that i would enjoy driving a large truck so much. I admittedly dont' know a ton about diesel performance but have been madly researching since discovering this board. I have decided that I want to get an SCT programer. I basically want good performance without compremising reliability, or safety. This vehicles reliability is crutial and I don't really want to damage a vehicle with such a healthy price tag. But with that said.. I want as much performance as possible. I don't want a full out drag truck I have cars for that but I would like a nice street machine.. So I'm thinking maybe the SCT with 3 appropriate tunes.. I also don't really want to void that nice factory ford warrenty . I'm leaving this message because to be honest with you, I don't really have time to hunt down vendors and compare. I basically want this item asap and would like to have one purchased and on route to me by the end of the day. I'm interested in what the different vendors of this board can offer me as far as prices/wait time/tunes and services. Please contact me via email or phone 705-439-3264 in the office today. Hopefully someone can help me out.. Thanks in advance..

You need to consider adding gauges, improving your intake and exhaust before you add any type of SCT tunes. If you are planning on using the tunes that is. We have packages setup for gauges and SCT Xcal 2.

Hey..

Here is my personal email..
[email protected]

-Is it definitely necessary to ad gauges.. probably boost and exhaust temp i would assume before running any of the tunes.
-Intake and exhaust also.. Will i run into warranty issues with exhaust or intake..??

I have a couple of pm's.. I'm checking right now..

Yes gauges are very important when using an tuner to monitor temps with in the engine and exhaust temps. Warranty issues are always something you need to think about when modding your truck. If it is something that is important to you and you don't want to void it, then don't mod your truck until it is up.

How much do you want to tow? That would be my specialty.
