Which tuner/chip and Exhaust?
I'm Izord, Live in Southern New Mexico.
I have a 2008 F350 SRW that I daily drive about 15 - 30 miles, and occasionally drive a couple hundred miles. I pull a 38 foot fifth wheel toy hauler a few times a year.
I got the truck new in late 2007 and the engine/power train is bone stock.
I wouldn't mind having more power and definitely fuel economy.
I get around 12-13 mpg driving around. Maybe 14-15 on the highway. It's always been like this, maybe a little worse before it was broken in. As far as I can tell the motor is working according to spec and I've never had any trouble with it.
A friend at work said I should chip it for better fuel economy and power.
I don't want to go crazy, I don't need to be able to burn off the tires at red lights or anything. Don't need methanol or propane or any kind of injection.
Just want a good tuner or chip, with good support, a good company that has been around for a while and sells lots of chips or tuners.
Can you recommend something good for me? I wouldn't mind being able to change the program, so ease of programming would be nice.
And is it highly recommended to upgrade my exhaust system? Or could I get by pretty well with the factory exhaust and just put on a chip or tuner?
