Question Is the DPF-R Ford 4.0 Programmer any good?

I just bought an 08 F-250 with the 6.4L three weeks ago so I am new to the powerstroke world and could use some advice. I love the truck it looks and runs great but the fuel economy is not what I had hoped for. I realize that this is a 3/4 ton truck but the 03 cummins I had got great mileage. Granted the engine and mileage were the only good things about the truck. I have read several of the threads on this site and watched the youtube videos about dpf/doc deletes and programmers and how they increase mileage. The truck is used for work so I want to keep it as close to stock as possible but I would like for it to breathe a little better. I am looking into upgrading the air box and filter and ordering the dpf/doc delete pipes. I found the DFP-R Ford 4.0 programmer and delete pipes for a reasonable price. Has anyone had any experience with this programmer? I am just looking for a programmer to delete the regen. I dont want to add a ton of horsepower at this point. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I had a NADP 4.0 with a dpf delete only and i got about 2 mpg better over stock with it and I could have gotten better if i drove it nicer. but it worked well. Not a single problem and its a code reader which can be handy.

Thanks for the reply I appreciate the info. It says that that you dont put the sensors back into the exhaust. Do you just tie them up out of the way?

yes you can just tie them up out of the way if it doesnt require any sensors to plugged back in.
