H&S does pretty well, I don't know how the SCT does on these trucks. Let us know how you do. Edge has their CS and CTS line of tuners and they do well too. I have their Evolution CTS race tuner and get decent gains in the mileage department.

If you aren't doing custom tunes go with h&s. Their xrt pro will cost you about the same as a livewire with canned tunes and will be shift on the fly up to 250 hp.

I did the minmaxx, s&b intake a DOC/DPF delete and see maybe 1 to 1.5 mpg gain on the hot damn tune. I am going to try the KEM 345 after the holidays with the hope it will do better. If not, I may try the SCT.

The last few tanks have been 14.5 or so, the best I have seen is 15.6. Thats over 10 re-fills all the way to the brim. The most miles I have gotten on a tank of fuel has been 458. The most I have ever put in it at one fill-up was 30.2 gallons, thats with a 30.5 gallon tank. I am not sure how much the fill tube holds, or how much space is left in the tank when its at the 30.5 gallaon mark. I drive 52 miles to work, one-way, 80% highway @ 70 mph.

I recommend doing more reading here and one other forums to get the most information you can. IMO there isn't a clear cut winner. Each has their own pros and cons. I went with Spartan for it dashdaq display and tow performance tune , but it is expensive and can't shift on the fly. H&S cost about the same, has shift on the fly, but no tow tune and I personally don't like the display as much as the Spartan. SCT is good but they tend to over do it on injection timing to get the big HP numbers which isn't good for towing, but they are half the cost of Spartan/ H&S. So IN MY OPINION , there is no clear cut winner, it all depends on what you can live with and how much money you feel comfortable spending. For me the winner was Spartan, and I just deal with the lack of shift on the fly and the lighter wallet.
