There is nothing to see. it's just a file that gets loaded into your SCT.
You need to call Eric and Inovative and ask about the pwr gains on the SCT and their programs. I'll tell you right now though, They are the best out there...

I know everyone is saying SCT and ya'll plus my local shops have me convinced but, I already have the Banks 6 gun and really like the new Banks IQ and trans brake. I want a system that can monitor the whole engine and clear codes.This unit looks like its awsome! What do yall think about it? If I get the SCT I will have to get gauges too or something else to monitor with. Also the degassing when shifting dosent save the tranny with the banks?

I have an 05 f250 lariat with 125k two tone black and tan, and lots of chrome
Um you do understand that ARP studs are 500 dollars at MOST... And are the best... Btw its not new studs you dont have studs you just have head bolts. If its completly factory. Hope that helps. And with ANY tunning you need studs. Even stock trucks benefit from studs its one of the first things you do besides either new coolant flush or a EGR delete kit. Along with new gaskets. You could get an entire kit with all gaskets coolant studs and an sct programer for 1500 dollars.

Well look at it this way its going to cost some money i will look into it because i have not had it done yet. But when you take the bolts off the heads come right off. SOOOO while you are in there you might as well replace some gaskets with better very strong ones. Because when you blow one due to the factory ones being very weak you will have to pay the same labor again for having them removed with the studs. And im sure they wont charge anything to have it done while they are in there. And they are very cheap considoring you are saving your entire motor. And in my opinion doing an EGR delete is a VERY necessary thing to do for your motor. The EGR and coolant is the main problem for the 6.0s having a very bad name. Studs are like 450 dollars for the full set gaskets arnt much at all. I would say 500 dollars AT MOST or find a buddy who will do them for you for cheaper you can find it easy.

Ok Thanks! Yea when you figure out an instillation cost that would be great because i am very curious. Also what exactly is the problem with the EGR and what does the fix do?

Shop time can vary from 28-30+ hrs. Not a cheap prodject to do studs, egr or oil cooler. But best money spent would be at once since to do studs everything is going to be out.

What I am saying is this. The oil cooler which is prone to failure is in the valley of the engine block twards the front under the oil filter. For access you must pull the turbo, egr cooler, up pipe, intake, upper fuel bowl etc. (Not a quick easy task)
The head studs require you to pull pretty much the exact same items yet you don't have to remove the oil cooler to do studs/ headgaskets.
That being said if you don't have a fairly new oil cooler and your planning on doing studs to your truck it is a lot less labor to do it as a prevenative vs. A after thought. Essentially you would save the added labor of tearing it back down that far. Adding the egr delete shouldn't add any time since it is already on the list of parts to remove and reinstall..
I talked to a shop in houston that wanted $4000 turn key. This came with a warrantee and they surfaced heads and made sure everything was right. A place around here said 2850 if I supply the hard parts. They would do the machine work etc and get it right. A ford tech told me $1000 and he would do it in his drive way in a weekend.
