Seems like SCT and Bully Dog are now the same company, and H&S basically died when the EPA shoved a fine where the sun don't shine. So maybe H&S and Bully Dog do use very similar hardware, but the...

IIRC Matt's trans-only tune solved the cruise control disengage bump, but I might be mis-remembering. You could call them and ask about the 8k tune with studs vs bolts and see what they say.

60k per the 6.4L trans fluid change guide.

That is a 100% valid concern, wherewithal to pay versus doing it yourself is a huge cost differential, and a large part of your personal cost-benefit analysis. I personally think the benefits...

How many gears in the transmission? :-X03

It's not about the HP, it's all about how you use the torque.

I figure they upgraded it for a reason and it wasn't because it looks pretty. I did mine around 100k miles, good excuse to drop the pan and check the magnet. Re-used the old seal with no issues,...

You're making a comparison for GASOLINE powered engines, not diesels which is what the OP seemed to be looking at. Gas engine fueling is based on a stoichiometric mixture so obviously a larger...

All SCTs that come with stock tunes should have a "trans-only option that only changes TCM parameters, so it's not adding any power. Or you can call someone like Gearhead Diesel, he should be able...
