Default Which Programmer

So my next mod I am saving for is a programmer. I have read a lot of good things about Edge, but also have heard some bad (pretty much like any mod). I have also heard good things about Banks and Diablo. I want to make sure I get the best one for the money and performance. I am buying a camper soon and want to get as much as I can out of my truck to pull. Right now for performance I did the gotts and drop in K&N. As well as a magnaflow muffler. Not really planning on doing much else as performance goes for now. With my setup which would be the best? Thanks for the help

I have the same setup as you with the addition of being leveled. I started running the Edge Evolution about 2 months ago and love it. I have not tried messing with any of the setting on the tunes yet but I have been running the Tow tune and it made the truck wake up. I am sure others have opinions of the other two you mentioned and you will get a few different ideas but my vote is for the Edge.

For the F series, SCT and Edge are by far the two most popular brands.

im not saying that you should run something involving three consonants, but SCT is the way to go. I ran a four bank chip run by the dude who helped found SCT for many years and then an XCAL2 in my TBird and an XCAL3 in my truck.

I appreciate the information on these programmers. I will for sure look more into the SCT as well.

You can get a Edge from autoanything for &280 shipped. I just got one and am happy with it. I use it on tow mode and changed my tire size with it. So far, so good

Edge or SCT, both have great reviews and doubt you would be unhappy with either one, it is basically a choice is all.

If you already don't have a backup camera or a monitor (dash, mirror) set up for it, you might consider the Edge CTS. Has a video input (RCA) that will take any backup camera with a RCA plug. That includes the add-on units that fit in the tailgate handle or Ford logo.
