Watch the Dodge in the near lane. Keep an eye on his tires during a 4wd launch.

Read my previous post, go all the way or leave it stock. If you decide to Spartanize...it will be a lot more fun to drive. Don't use cheap imitations. You have a nice truck, if you want better fuel economy & a more drivable truck ( Spartan ) Mine has been tuned since 18,000 miles, 48,000 on meter now.

All that out and out power can be great, but have never had the need for that in my truck. My cars are a whole different story with one being a fully gutted and SCCA prepared race car, the other an E30 BMW road course/weekend toy.

My truck has all the standard 6.0 issues addressed (EGR, oil cooler changed, coolant filter, ARP studs and head gasket) and I am running no more then the SCT tow tune (+65hp.) I like the better throttle response and unloaded take off, and its perfectly fine for towing my 5er, or race trailer, or anything else I have tossed at it. The truck has stock intake, I bought it with a Banks Stainless cat back exhaust system.

About the only thing I plan to on the truck before I head to FL for my winter vacation is drop the stock Ford OEM replacement brake pads for Hawk LTS. After being cutoff at a red light with trailer attached, I would have liked a little more truck stopping power as the trailer was already locking up in my attempt to stop in time.

LOL! You say that....... I started out running mine on the 50 hp tune. I'm now running on the 140 hp tune. As soon as I get the coin to get my trans built I will probably turn it up a little more. You don't have to use it, but if you can make the max hp that you have now at half the RPM then it makes towing that muck more relaxing.
