Think I'm in trouble with the wifey....
Let me first say that I've been on this forum for about 4 months now and the amount knowledge and the willingness share has been awesome. In 11 years of being on auto forums, I think this is the best one yet as far as member's go.
This weekend I took step two in "bullet proofing" my 6.0. (Step one was to go fully synthetic.) I installed an EDGE CTS/w EGT probe, Sinister Coolant Filter, Custom SCT X3 tunes, and for a little more performance/milage/fun - 4 inch catless/mufferless exhaust from MBRP. So it was quite the productive weekend.
Now my problem..... My justification to the wife for letting me spend all of this money was that it would improve the mileage on the truck. Well, after putting about 200 miles on the truck this weekend, I'm not getting any better fuel mileage. I've been careful to keep my foot out of it, but still no luck. I tried the economy tune and street tune. Those of you with similar mods, did you notice any improvement?
