Tuning for 6.4

Alright my dad has a 09 with about 98,000 miles. He just wants to see better mileage, and obviously more power. We have a lot of fords and all diesel but I don't really know too much about the 6.4's. What is the best, most reasonable tuning for this purpose???

Spartan has spot on shifting with all their tunes and the 310 is a real fast tune.
I have run their 275 tune since my trucks were new with 0 problems.

All of the big four Spartin , H&S , KEM and Innovative will definatly give you more power but as far as increased fuel milege , don't expect much . Some will say that they are getting anywhere from 17-20 mpg . but the majority only see 1-2 mpg at best . I personally went from a 01 7.3 that was getting 15-17 mpg in the winter and 17-20 in the summer . now my 08 6.4 did 13mpg on the last 2 tanks , and thats driving like grampa .

08 F250 Ext. Cab long bed 4x4 Lariet , H&S Mini Maxx , 4" S/S Flow Pro Downpipe ,5" Flow Pro S/S Exhaust ,AFE si Intake , Pro Comp Traction Bars . Kem Mini Maxx 75 through 345 tuning .

In my opinion, the best, most reasonable tuning is H&S. I suggest taking a look at the XRT Pro. It is the most cost efficient, high quality, tuner on the market.
