Mods for best milage gains

What are you guys getting or what have you seen for MPG increase on your sixes with certain mods. I only have an edge juice right now and still dont see a significant increase in millage. Only about 18 on the highway at 60-65.

Is there better programmer/chip for milage and still have the performance tunes as well? What else can I do to maybe increase milage?

Last question is whats the best mod for the most power next to a chip?

I really hate the fact that the cummins make so much power so easily and it seem like we need to dump three times as much into them to make as much power.

I have 4" silverline not cat, banks ram air, superchips redline/extreme. I have a 4" rancho lift, w/35 BFG ATs and hiway I see about 18. In town 14-15. Intake and exhaust are important IMO.

Yeah, don't get me started on the Cummins, the bad part is you have to buy and deal with a Dodge to get it, its not worth the trade-off.. I'd rather have my sister in a cathouse than my brother in a Dodge....lol

I think cummins are awesome, plan on putting one in my 86 F250 but wouldnt trade the build quality of my Superduty for anything! Perfect truck would be a Superduty with a Cummins if you ask me. But I also love the Powerstroke they are good motors. I have not had a problem and I have owned an 02 7.3, 05 6.0 and now my 08 6.4
