I am thinking of trading my truck for a 6spd, actually I have been for a while but I was just curious how it performs with SCT tunes. I've driven a few 6.0 6spd's (all stock) and they are a little dead off the bottom but come to life when they spool up. I was just curious how everyone liked their 6spd.
Thanks :HappyMugs

I do not have an SCT but I do have a TS 5X loader. While it is better than stock it still is doggy on the bottom end

Thanks for the reply I just wanna make sure it can still run like my auto does. My truck runs like a spotted ape and I still wanna be able to smoke some ricers if needed, but have the control of the truck while pulling.

my stock clutch in my 04 didn't handle an edge juice very long at all and the sct has more power than the edge does

Like everyone else said, You will have to upgrade your clutch.

Which model did you get Tanks?? DF, CB or 8FB ?? Drop me a PM and let me know who you got it from. Thanks.

The SCT along with an intake and exhaust will get rid of the turbo lag. The engine spools up quickly, but I am not sure I could shift fast enough to win any races.

yeah, the 6 speed needs a short shift kit to make it semi-competant. i remember reading that the throw from low to 5th is almost 12 inches! i think BD sells short shift kits...the SCT or the 5X will wake a 6 speed truck up considerably :evil:
