i had a hypertech i was great on fuel i gained a extra 3 to 4 mpg but it didnt have that great power. now i have sct with djs tunes its got great power but im not getting as good milage. it all bepends on what you are doing with the truck. its nice cause you can tow on max setting.

Agreed! I had an SCT, and sold for a hypertech to save some cash on fuel. It was a good choice for that reason, but did lose some power and smoke. The heaviest Ive towed on level 3 was a 18' enclosed trailer with about 5K in it, so I havent towed real heavy, I did put pedal to floor to watch temps and boost, and it still never got over 1200 degrees. Also pulled the trailer like it wasnt there at all.
