what brand of tuner is best ?

Hello, new 2 the psn. Just wondering if some brand tuners are better, safer,stronger, etc. than others? New 2 diesels, got mine in july, hear you can get big results with them and reprogrammers. I know there not out yet for 6.7's but whitch brand should i look for? I hear locals talk about Spartan.

It all depends on what truck you have. The 6.7's are just startin to be tapped into. If you do a search on here for specific year and engine model you will find alot of results on what works and what doesn't.

Watch for SCT and Spartan when they become available, Innovative Diesel and KEM tune SCT very well, Spartan did an excellent job with the 6.4 so look out for them in the new future as well

If you are talking to me, then I don't know. I think they are only claiming 100 hp. So that depends on if you can wait for something better to come out I guess.

Re: what brand of tuner is best ?

with the 6.4 they are adding up to 350 horse with a dpf delete and tuning...

you have different options u can tune your truck to it goes anywhere from stock and steps up incrementally to 350ish...

on the 6.7 there isnt any tuners out yet..TS has a pressure box out that just raises rail pressure but the actual tuners should be getting released here decently soon...no one really knows what kinda numbers their gonna have yet

08 ECSB 6.4
MPD, GOGO, No Limit, Rudys, ARP, PMF, Innovative, AFE, Recon, Fuel, Nitto, Bilstein


Fueled by...Fuel, lots of it

Don't ever get diesel confused with gass.

A tuner on a diesel usually yields big results.
