Sct vs edge???

Ive got the 6.0 and it currently has the ol sct xcal2, ive had my eye on the sct 5015 ts but have had a few people tell me go edge. I know i want to be able to change the setting on the go unlike my xcal inwhich i can not. Ive got cold air, egr delete, 4 inch exhaust arp head studs.... om just looking to make more power and better fuel milage but still be able to switch it to stock with the push of a button. Any help would be great!

Re: Sct vs edge???

welcome to the forum!
for several years now, Edges tuners were not recommended for the 6.0, but just within the last few days I was enlightened lol! Looks like they have a new one out that competes with SCT:

Re: Sct vs edge???

fair question! not sure about it having pre-loaded tunes or not. haven't had a chance to read about it yer, but i bet it would have some basic tunes pre-loaded if you bought it outright. If you buy it from a performance diesel company, i would imagine they would load tunes written custom for your truck onto your device for you. seems that they are pretty good about helping out if you're buying from them lol

might be worth a call/email to a vendor on here to see how they deal with this new tuner

Re: Sct vs edge???

no prob! one other thing to consider, if you have (or plan to have) and egr delete, you'll want to know whether the pre-loaded tunes will logically deleted the egr functionality ... that is, turns the CEL off. you have an 05? yeah, 05 to 07s usually pop a light on the dash... just something to think about

Its on the xcal2, extreme street setting. Which is the middle setting. The highest one is tittled "get er done" not impressed with whoever did that tune, seems like it was done for smoke. Lots of smoke and no power lol

Re: Sct vs edge???

edge preloaded tunes are not ford friendly. they also are not transmission friendly.
about the only thing edge tunes are good for are dodges.
get a real tuner for you ford.
or save yourself some money and send your SCT out and have some real tunes put in it since you already have it.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
