Best tune for stock bolt truck: MPG/power

Looking for the best SCT tune that gets the best mileage and power. Anyone have experience with multiple tunes? My truck is going to have a 4" TBE and tuner, that's it for now.

I will throw a vote out for the Looney tune from Vivian at Quicktricks. It gets the best mileage on my truck. And it has lots of power. I think you will be more than satisfied with the tune and her customer service. I've also heard the SRL gets good mileage but I've never personally ran that tune.

I LOVE my Looney. But all the tuners out there have good reputations. I go to Vivian because her customer service is AMAZING

Yes the looney is for stock head bolts. The looney wild is for a studded truck.

I have IDP's extreme street and so far I do like it alot. The shifts are pretty firm but thats how I like it. All I have is an egr delete. We will see how long I can make it without studs. Most people are fine with this tune as long as you dont constantly rag on your truck.

Yeah, i want the tune that I really dont have to worry about taking it easy, not to say I'm going to rag on it though. I'm going to get studs within 10k miles, just don't have the funds after buying an egr delete, oil cooler, exhaust, tuner, etc. I do have an extended warranty though just in case it does blow a gasket, I just would prefer to prevent any damage to my truck if possible

The stuff before the extended warranty sentence just threw it out the window.

I have the srl and it has plenty of power and nets about 17mpg overall. I used to have the spd, had more power, but only got around 15mpg. I'll trade a few ponies for more economy.
