Alrite. If the sct doesn't have it yet consider sending ur tuner into innovative. I'm getting their tunes as we speak. And on the bright side if u do send ur tuner in u don't have to set ur tuner back to stock.

I cant say they are more reliable, I never had a problem with my 6.0. But what I have read they are either good or bad. Guess I had a good one.
Dont expect that much better fuel mileage towing, more so that much weight.
Towing if you are getting a truck to handle that 26000#, which would be a 450. Towing 18000# tall fiver I get around 8 round trip to the beach and back, but the pull both ways sucks and is hard. Down the freeway cruising I have seen 11 or so.
Now the power is night and day difference, which I am sure if I towed the hills at the same speed my 6.0 went up them I would get better but that isnt any fun.

I tow a 5th wheel with mine. I put them on the scales last time I towed and came in at 23000 #s. Cruising at 65-70 towing with that weight I average 10.5 mpg. That is w/doc/dpf delete, Mini maxx set on wild, tranny set to S1L, CAI, 4" downpipe back exhaust. Before the mods towing with that weight only got me 7-8.
