I have a stock 05 F-350; extended cab short box and I am looking at tuners, intakes and exhaust.. i would like some suggestions on what the PSN recommends; and instead of buying seperately what do people think of the Banks; bully dog etc packages that include them?
SCT is the only way to go, but make sure and get custom files for it. I have the SCT live wire tuned by tadd at elite diesel and i love it, ive heard good things about innovative, dj and elite but i opted for elite tunes because theyre so close to me and they have a great customer service, i ordered my 3 tunes in the a.m. and had em in my email by noon and installed em during my lunch hour, best $150 ive spent. I have magnaflow exhaust without the cat and i really like it, i also have heard the mbrp and it sounds great also, as for intake i have the K&N fipk i dont have any complaints but kinda wished i would have tried a few more b4 i jus jumped into the K&N my buddy has the afe pg7 with the battery tray and its definately a nice intake. thats my $.02
I'm not on too tight of a budget but I am only 19.. so I would prefer not to spend too too much.. The tuners I have been looking at (Edge A2, with the monitor; and the Quadzilla Xzillaraider with the monitor as well) so how much better is the SCT than either one of those?
I had the edge platinum with the attitude monitor b4 i got my SCT and it doesnt even compare. The SCT with the custom tunes in it blows the edge out of the water. I have a buddy that had the edge juice with the hot tune and the edge evolution stacked and my SCT pulls away from him and hes in a truck and im in an excursion. I also have a vid of me racing an lbz duramax with intake, exhaust and a crazy larry tune, and all i had was intake (K&N FIPK) exhaust (magnaflow) and elite custom tuned SCT livewire. Ill se if i can post the vid. Oh and by the way the edge is for sale but id still reccomend the SCT.
SCT w/ custom tunes as stated above. But make sure u get the x-cal III it is the latest and greatest, u can data log on it. Intakes I'm a strong believer in afe stage IIs. The new pro-dry is nice, easy to clean and is oil-less. As for exhaust u really cant go wrong with either mbrp or magna flow, but get a turbo back with cat delete!
