I understand being sceptical on putting custom tunes on your truck but these tuners try their tunes on mutiple truck so that they release the best tune for the buck.

Custom tunes will be more reliable than canned tunes :ford:

With custom tune you can work with the tuner and adjust what you need. I'm not going to put anyone on the spot but customer service is usually key. They do not want a bad repore especially with the internet. Basically just ask before you buy.

any tuner out there will work with you until you get a tune that you like... innovative, gogo or gearhead are good choices. I have tunes from all three and they all work well.

And what are you worried about shift points for you have a 6 speed. I had a 2006 6.0 6 speed dually and ran Innovative Diesel extreme street and first 2 gears you couldn't shift fast enough but it ended up needing a clutch after about 3000 miles. it just wouldn't hold the power.

You spent the $500 on the tuner, but wont spend the other $50 for custom tunes that will make your truck run faster, better and safer? Why are you "skeptical" of custom tunes?

If you can't pony up the funds for tuning then live with what you got in canned tuning. :doh: I'm sure there's plenty of aluminum cans out there....

Does anybody have a free non-VGT turbo I can try on my truck? I know a lot of guys have switched but I don't want to sacrifice street manners. So maybe a performance company has a free upgraded turbo they could send me.

Talk to [email protected], he let me try out one of his custom tunes before I bought his big one. I was so impressed with his entry tune that I contacted him the same day and purchased his SRL!

Aggie at Truck Source loaded my SCT for my 6.0 with his panty dropper tunes and I've had great results with them. As far as free tunes, just put down a little coin. The custom tunes are great and the guys at the shops deserve to be paid for what they do.

I also hear a lot of good about Chris (aggie) at TSD's tunes.

If I had a 6.0, I'd have either Chris, Matt, or GoGo tunes. Or all 3. LOL

Go ahead and try a canned tune, some trucks dont like it what so ever. IF you wanna play you need to pay. Sorry getting tired of the lame excuse ppl trying to get away with free stuff whats the point if you get a tuner made for CUSTOM tuning. IF you didnt want custom tuning get a banks or edge junk.
