What controller/programer?

my roommate has a 04 powerstroke. i just finally steered him away from banks. it took about 2 months to do it, but when he finally saw hom much he wouldve spent for what he wouldve got, he opened his eyes. whats yalls advice for say a 4" exhaust, cold air intake, and programmer/chip/ downloader. i drive a dodge cummins, so i dont really know to much about anything for a 6.0. ive heard a lot of great things from DP tuners. what input do yall have so i can help him out. i know he wants someting that he can adjust in the cab to turn it down when he's pullin heavier loads (around 12k-15k tops).
thanks

The sct can be custom tuned for higher levels of hp. People that do the custom tuning consist of, Tadd @ elitedieseleng.com , eric from innovative diesel, and dj from DJs diesel performance. There are afew others but the ones listed are most talked about on here.

Re: What controller/programer?

You can get a Diablosport Predator used for 150 dollars or a new one for around 300. Off the shelf, these little tuners are the best downloader for the money. Also they have more tuning potential now, as Innovate Motorsports has a log works software program that interfaces with your laptop so you can actually tune the fuel injectors to meet your performance needs, using the Predator, and guage your changes with logworks. I think the Log works is around 120 dollars. I am going to run this set up during this years drag season. THe other stuff, intake and exhaust they are pretty much all the same. I would say go with afe intake and exhaust because they are dyno tuned to compliment each other.

Predator is intended for fine tuning stock or mildly-modified vehicles

Re: What controller/programer?

Anyone have expierience with the EDGE products? I was considering the Edge Juice platinum w/the Attitude controller. I like the fact that you can set a turbo timer, and shift points, as well as have the boost and EGT gauge's all in one.
