No matter who you choose don't set your hopes too high. I know I did and set myself up for disappointment. The BIG gains you read about here aren't guaranteed by a long shot.

With a dpf delete , good open intake and a H&S 225-250 tune. Youll be blown away with All the very noticable improvements to your truck.

You can count on 3-5 MPG increase in Freeway and around town. Im still smiling over the gains I got
14-15 around townand 18-20 Hiway.

The MPG of any dpf delete tuner will depend on your right foot. Drive light, good mileage, heavy, lower mileage. But Innovative, H&S and Spartan will all get it if driven right. H&S is pushed now, Spartan used to be (Still is some). I have Innovative and have been happy with the tuning, as I was with my 6.0. Just use the search and do some reading and decide for yourself.
