Tuned 6 speeds please chime in, and tuners

Hey guys I obviously hae a 6 speed 6.0 and wanting to pick up some tunes. Who's tunes are DRIVEABLE with a 6 speed? I don't mind touchy but my 7.3 was touchy enough that you couldn't drive it right turned up, I had to run in my tow tune constantly. Being as a 6 oh you download the tune I want to run it in my hot program and not have to worry about driveability problems and jerkiness.

So someone convince me

Thanks,Luke

Luke, I have a 6 speed 6.0 and i have had tunes from most everyone. I have only ever had a couple tunes that didn't drive good. The problem with the tunes was that the rpms would drop real slow on shift. I liked DJ's, innovative, spartan and rcd.

Yep , Adam sold me a SCT X3 with tunes from Innovative diesel . No problems with aggressive tow or street files .Runs good , smooth . extreme race file is NASTY , got to shift fast as it cranks rpms instantly . ( Breaks tires loose in my dually in 2nd and 3rd gears)

I got the same EXACT thing, from Adam too.... The tunes are sick, street tune is streetable, and race tune will KILL ur tires due to the spinning!!!! Innovatives tunes seem to be doin well!!!!

want a cookie? that wasn't exactly the original question.

Thanks guys maybe the lag of the VGT makes these easier to drive than my old 7.3.

How bout smoke output from various vendors? are any of them putting out outrageous amounts? Not sure I wanna fog everything out. Or is that pretty controllable too?

I have ran IDP and Elites tunes. You just better be ready to by a clutch because a stock one will not hold the power.
