Just cleaned and reset VGT

and I must say, the drivability improved dramatically!
2005 F350 6.0L with automatic transmission.

Wanted to pass that along as before, the truck seemed sluggish during city driving and was always in the high-boost to get around town and ever since putting the Magnaflow exhaust on last month, mileage had improved on the highway by about 3 mpg, but again, power seemed WAY down. So today, I had some time and decided to clean the VGT and reset it just to see what would happen.

Just got back and drivability has improved overall. Transmission seems to shift firmer and at the right spots, as where before, it seemed to shift late or shift weak when it did shift. Is it related? I don't know but thought I should at least report it. I'll update the MPG average once I've put a few more tanks of fuel in it.
Good day
