PPE or EFI live. Does he want to build the tranny right away? If he plans on keeping the truck EFI is probably the best tool. What other plans does he have?

well he is still in college and is a master student..DEBT! lol...I KNOW he doesn't want to build the tranny, atleast not until he really gets the bug haha... He just got it a about a week ago...PPE eh... can you give me a price range? Are these custom tuning deals. I mean I only know about the tunes for SCT on my 6.0.

EFI will take the tranny out pretty quick?

Any cheap mods? Shim pumps, CCV, silencer ring, ect....

Any programmer over +100hp will eventually take the stock tranny out. Tell him to be careful not to get power happy on the 4-5 upshift. Thats where the limp starts, and it progresses from there.

PPE is the best handheld out there IMO. Quad makes some really nice programs too. Predator is also very good.
I think theres a PPE for sale here.

hmm.. I have a predator collecting dust for my 6.0. You think I could give it to him and he could have it reflased... its a handheld style also..Predator was basicly the worse thing to happen to the 6.0. They have it straightened out on the Dmax?

You have to call them to ask if the tuner can be reflashed. Yes, Diablosport had some of the best mileage programs out there for the Dmax before EFILive came online. Their perfromance programs were very good too.
