I have a bully dog and like it a lot! But at times it shifts kind a hard, but I have learned how to drive it! If I could buy another I would go with the SCT!!

SCT with custom files has reigned at the top. Power Hungry Performance has some FICM tuning out to compliment any tuning.

Along with all my other mods I currently use custom SCT files with the Atlas 40 FICM tuning from PHP. No excuses, no complaints...just results!! It's the best this truck has ever run.

2006 F-350 CC PSD Lariat 4X4 LB 3.73 LS

Some stock stuff, some modded stuff, some deleted stuff.....

My girls dad has an 06 6.0L PS in a Lariat crew cab and he uses the Edge tuner and loves it hands down. With his truck we can have the slide in camper and trailer behind it and he doesn't even get out of "overdrive" gear on his manual tranny when driving thru the hills of CO and WY :-) It's nice cause he can switch it on the fly and not loose his "stock" setting for normal driving. Plus no re-flashing it's all done thru the controller.

The edge module (juice) does not tune the computer. It fools the computer. Tuning it would mean you could remove the device and the tune still be on the truck. I wouldn't use the juice on a automatic truck unless I wanted a tranny damage
