F150 4.6 Tuning

I'm a diesel guy myself, but my neighbor has a 2006 F-150 w/4.6l engine. He is interested in a chip or programmer, but doesn't have a clue. What seems to work best for the 4.6? I know that the 5.4 responds very well to SCT tuning, but I haven't heard anything about the 4.6 yet.

I would appreciate any insite or experience that anybody has had with this.

Can't do a chip on a ptech computer.

He could do an SCT also. Would work just fine.

What results does the SCT usually achieve? Also, would you have different tunes like we have for the diesels or is it just one performance tune?

The SCT holds 3 tunes. What results are you after? I have found that with my f150 5.4l that I really only use 1 or 2 tunes.

I'm just trying to figure gas tuning out. I have a real good grasp on diesel tuning especially the 6.0 Ford. This guy tows a small camper so he would need something tow safe and probably an all out performance tune otherwise. I didn't know if that was how it works with the gassers.

What hp gain does a 4.6 usually see? I know DP is good with the 7.3, do you do gas tuning as well? If so, I would like pricing for an SCT for the 4.6 F-150.

Thanks!

gogoman is starting off with a positive reputation.
SCT is a great programmer (maybe the best) for this truck. A SCT 3 is $399.
