Get a real tuner. Call Eric over at innovative and tell him what u have and he can burn u a set of custom tunes.. Much better than the canned tunes and way better than that banks crap.. No offense

I love blowing money too, but i like to be able to use and like the thing that i waste my money on. Do some searching around man, SCT is the way to go on the 6.0's. Banks=Garbage!

Ehhh I respectably disagree.. These engines love tuning. Now i agree if u go run it on extreme race all day ten yes something will break things but an economy tune would indeeed help it i feel

SCT with custom tunes is the only way to go on a 6.0. Need prices or any help let me know

SCT with custom tunes and you'll be happy. Truck will be fine with it with that many miles and long as you don't beat the crap out of it.

At 285k stock I say don't f with it. You are riding on thin ice, but it’s not my money so put a tune on it I could give a rats a$$. I’ll be waiting for the next tread about 285k drinking coolant, what are the cooling properties of diesel for coolant how do you fill in a window in the block. I could be wrong though...
