Hypertech programmer

Has anybody used the Hypertech Max Energy on the 6.4? I had one on my 2003 7.3 and it worked very well. Dont know if it will work as well on my 08 6.4 if anyone has info I would like to hear.

scottsman411, here is our dyno numbers from our website.
stage 1 44hp
stage 2 80hp
stage 3 114hp
I'm sure someone will chime in and let you know how it works for them, I just wanted to give you our hp figures. Everyone I've talked to on the phone is happy with them. The fuel economy is not good on these trucks and we do help it about 1 to 3mpg.

I had one on my 08 and it worked very well for the price. I didn't see a lot of mileage increase but the truck did have a lot more pep. For the price of the programmer I think it was a great buy. If you are just looking for a little more horsepower and a small mileage gain for a small price, then it's a good programmer to buy. DPF delete is the best way to go for these trucks but it can get pricey and you have to worry about having to put it back on for warranty work. It just all depends on you and what your looking for.

Thanks for the info. If I can get 2-3 mpg more I would be happy, that would put mpg in the range of my old 7.3.
I have read alot of post about removing the DPF, not sure I want to go that route with only 50k on the truck.
All I am looking for is a modest power and milage increase. I know I will not get big mpg out of this engine.
Can you let me know which setting will help mpg the most?
