Any suggestions?Atla 40 or ecotune for FICM?

I just sent my FICM to ficmrepair.com,and I requested the ecotune......should I call and change that to the atlas 40?I have 4"MBRP exhaust,and I do not tow!I believe I have head gasket issues though which I am looking after early spring.Should I stay with the ecotune or change to atlas 40 tune??

Yep I agree^^ I too have the Atlas40 in my ficm and I really like it. I also have 4" straight exhaust and my milage went from high 13 mpg to high 16mpg,s and I was not expecting that at all.
The power in the lower range is not a big difference for my truck but when you are at highway speeds and mash down on the pedal it pulls like hell compared to the stock ficm tune. I have 38" tires and it will still go from 65mph to 95mph in a hurry, it's amazing the difference in the top end and yet at the same time my highway milage is 2+ mpg better.
So again YES go with the Atlas40......

I agree with mhatlen on the biggest difference being on the highway and in the mileage. I got Atlas 40 put on about a week ago and I could immediately tell a difference on the drive home. The truck just feels smoother, and I'm tuned too.

Creeker6.0 what are you seeing for egt's? I ask cause I have the 80 and even with out towing I can make the Edge alarm go off (I think its factory set at 1500*) very easily.

the atlas 40 adds approx 40HP and around 100lbs-ft which rocks IMO
