want to put a program on truck

i have a 2008 ford f 55o. i just got it back from the dealer and have a brand new motor. other motor let go at 130k. never had a program in truck. motor went bad due to high volume fuel pump. anyways. i got a new motor and i want to put a program on it that will give me better miliage. i have already installed gear vendors gear box. don't waste your money on it. not worth the money. fuel miliage didn't change. so i'm not really looking for more power. i'm looking for some fuel miliage and i would also like to govern the speed to 70 mph cause i want to put a driver on the truck. any information would make my day.

I like Spartan. Not saying that you should, or have to get it, but I just really like the Spartan system, the options, the power, the safety, the increased MPG, well you get the point.

Running Spartan Tunes AFE PG 7, Flo Pro 4" DP Back, thanks to Cobb's Diesel. It has been great so far.

If someone else will be driving your truck dont do the spartan!

You wont get much more mpg's without a dpf delete. Hell I only got 2 more mpg's when i did the delete.
