I have come across a package deal of a new Diablo tuner and Pace Setter headers, and I am wondering what the differences between the Diablo and Edge are?

The vehicle is a 2006 F150 with 5.4L

i work for an automotive parts supplier & drive an 07 f150 5.4.i tried diablo,superchips,edge,bullydog & hypertech tuners .i used the edge monitor to check 0-60 times.the diablo was very inconsistent&had average times,hypertech was second from bottom,bullydog was by far the slowest,superchips was a very close second & had the best driveability.edge was the fastest&has the most options such as gauges.edges customer service sucks,but it was still the fastest,and that was using only level 2 of 3.as for headers jba makes a good product,but i went with banks just to be different.they fit very well,have huge flanges,gave me almost 3mpg gain&they are stainless

what would the banks headers be worth......parts and installation?
would they help me much?.......currently have a magnaflo catback system. Will I need highflo cats as well to reap full benefits. Would your truck still pass an e-test?

banks will sell you the headers direct,not sure on current pricing but probably around $600,installation probably about 6-8 hrs at whatever shop rate is.they fit very well but installing them is no fun.i put mine on myself & there is not much room.hiflow cats not needed we put magnaflow cats and factory cats on a flow bench & there was almost no difference.as for gains,not huge but my gas mileage went up about 3mpg,midrange power better,but not drastic.they do make the truck sound deeper&you can hear a little more engine noise near the front.

In short, Edge is MSD who makes and designs the worlds best ignition systems and many OEM products. Diablo is interested in being the first to market with anything for Ford and GM. I'd bet on the hare everytime. IMO
