Re: 6.0 powerstroke upgrades
If you're only towing 6K and you have any concern about your warranty, don't bother with any upgrades. Most 6.0s dyno at about 280HP stock. So I don't think it's wise to risk your warranty just for an extra 20HP.
If you don't care about your warranty and want more than an extra 20HP, then you'll want a new exhaust and intake. Then you'll need guages to keep an eye on things (tranny, exhaust, & turbo). Now your ready for some serious extra power.
Last but not least you'll want a programmer or module for the added power. Try innovativediesel.com for a programmer, and edgeproducts.com or quadzillapower.com for a module. Whether you choose a programmer or a tuner is kind of a personal preference. Just stay at or below a 100HP increase and you should be fine.
