Default O/T Power Chips for 6.0 PSD

I'm looking for a performance chip to put in a 6.0l Ford PSD. Which one's the best, what are the pro's and cons??

Thanks for any help

The Edge with Attitude monitor works extremely well. The built in safeguards are very nice and you can set up the module to your liking. Jassman has the Edge, I am sure he will chime in here. Sam

Check out WWW.Edgeproducts.com . PMT is an OSO sponsor and sells them as well. It works awesome, especially with the Attitude which has a built in gauge package, all adjustable on the fly, 40, 60, 80, 100, and 115hp which is really 127hp and up to 290torque. The only problem is on level 4 and 5 should only be used on highway, it overpowers the tranny, especially from a stop sign. Im very pleased and also have them on both my Duramaxes, one has over 190,000 miles. Call me if you have Q's, otherwise get it and you will be pleased. I turned a 13.989 in a 4wd dually, w/turbo back dual exhaust and an AFR proguard 7 filter set up. Enjoy, Jeff 228-216-0900.

Gail Banks just came out with one and it seems to be good. Some guys have problems with the edge when the trans shifts. go to www.fordtrucks.com under 6.0 and do a search. There are a few out now.

No matter which module you get, after 80hp they all shift like crap. The trans when towing or loaded when in anything over 80 hp shifts great, so to me its a pressure line situation, some after market tuners for the tranny fix have been working on this for months. So if put in level 4 and 5, and you are into smokin tires all the time, all the way down the street, its best to leave in level 3, like I do, and use 4 and 5 on the highway, when some Mustang wants to run with you, you will get him every time, up to the speed limiter of 97. What you want is tech support, the best co out there is Edge period, you call the shop and talk to three people, AAron the owner, matt or Justin, all three of these guys will go out of their way to make it right if you have problems. 1-801-476-3343, toll free number. good luck, Jeff

All the above products are good products. Nothing bad to say about any of them.

The Diablo Predator Programmer does NOT have any shifting problems in the 100hp mode. Mine shift perfectly with no hesitation.

Default I would look seriously at the Predator

Theuy have different settings.

For towing you want to keep EGT lower and lower firmness on the shifts.

I haven't tried the predator yet even though I sell them ... MOst programmers don't work well ,and loose their power over time . Maybe not on this one ,I don't know . Other then that , The ONLY one that works is the Edge box . The newer ones don't have shifting problems . You have to get the right one and there is a trick to instaling it too.

NO , the Banks trans comand doesn't work very good on anything ! Neither do their chips .... ( I sell them too ) . Joe
