If you have an android phone you can buy the Torque PRO app for $5, and buy a Bluetooth ODB adapter plug for around $10 on amazon. With the Torque PRO app you can read all of your PID's, do data logging, and also read and clear any fault codes.......much cheaper than buying a tuner if all you want to do it read and clear codes.

You currently have a CEL on, or you're expecting one after the EGR delete? If that's all you want a tuner for I would save my money and see if it sets a CEL first. Early trucks will not set a CEL. '06 may not even be affected.

I would not tune with Edge period. I put one on my truck at 12k miles. By 68k my trans was junk. $3,500 out of pocket (trans warranty only goes to 36k under the "100k powertrain warranty"). SCT tuning and no issues, while making substantially more power. I now only use my Edge as a monitor, for which it works really well. If that's what you want buy the CTS; its a great system. The Torque app works well from what I've heard. You can buy a bluetooth dongle and a used smart phone cheaply enough and mount the phone with a dash mount. You won't get EGT or fuel pressure that way though, which are two important things to monitor, but the cost difference is substantial. Anyway, information if power and all that, and now I've got some more of it.

'06 F250 4x4 - 5" Flo Pro exhaust, SB Filter intake, Accufab elbow, Edge Evolution (monitoring only), SCT w/ ID custom tune, FASS 195 pump, Gillette Diesel EGR cooler delete, Sinister Diesel coolant filter, ELC coolant, updated turbo drain tube/oil feed line/STC fitting/oil cooler, ARPs w/OEM HGs, Elite coolant lines, ITP RR fuel system, RCD 175/30 injectors, Powermax, BD CCV, FICM.com FICM w/ ID tune, Elite UP, BPD water pump - 13.069 @ 101.94

'02 WRX - Outback rear disc swap, EBC green pads, DBA pillar vane rotors, TXS UP/TBE/TMIC, Perrin LW crank pulley, PPG billet steel shift forks, ACT Streetlite flywheel & clutch, K&N filter, STi Group N motor/trans mounts, TiC/Kartboy rear diff mounts/subframe lock bolts/outrigger stiffeners, Kartboy SS & all shifter bushings, custom PDX tune for Cobb AP - went 14.1 on a terrible 60ft before most of these mods; shooting for 13.50s

I like the Edge better for monitoring, so I would buy it.

Which tune should I choose?
Have you a link from the SCT?
Thanks

I just got an 05 F350 Super Duty and I am very new to this whole thing. It has a lot of aftermarket changes that I need to understand. I have the SCT tuner and I have been playing around with it. I am still trying out all the different engine options that it offers. I have played it safe up till recently and now my truck exhaust doesn't sound the same as it did when I first started. The truck was very fast and had lots of power, now it sounds bad, and does not put out. It has a small coolant leak near the reservoir. I have had every mechanic I know looking for this thing, it is very slow and it is spraying leaving deposits on the hood and down under. I have a coolant filter which I have replaced. I replaced the reservoir its hose, flushed the system and I am still smelling coolant. I have never worked with or owned a Ford Super Duty and I really like this truck!!!! I don't want to loose it to a lack of knowledge and make a mistake driving it or over looking something or neglecting any signs. Were do I start???

Thank you, I forgot to mention that I had it pressure tested and its holding pressure. I was worried I might have messed up the head gasket but it is holding strong.

maybe you have the problem only with a warm/hot engine? Unfortunately, there is no sensor at the 6.0 be warned to low coolant. That would calm me down. Even my 1984 6.2 Chevy have that.
I'm going to fix something so I'll be warned if the coolant disappears
