Smile Best Tuner to add MPG and some power

Hey Guys,

Need your wise knowledge:

I have an 08 F350. Not sure which tuner is best for it to get better MPG and a little more power. I have the SCT with custom tunes on my '03 6.0L and am happy with it except for the shifting (too hard).

I am also looking for a strobe kit, cat back exhaust, and other cheap/easy mods (that won't void warranty) if anyone has any input.

honestly...

you will gain very lil in MPG with any tuner unless you take off the DPF.... thats what killing your MPG....

if your not willing to take off the DPF then my suggestion is to not mod your truck at all.... you will be very dissapointed when you spend on a tuner, intake, and DPF back exhaust because you will see little to no change in your MPG

that being said you can do a SCT DPF delete kit... comes with the DPF delete pipe and the livewire tuner with the DPF delete tune... then go with a S&B intake and a MBRP exhaust....

let me know if you have any other questions bud

if you want to keep your waranty and get better milage...start praying for a miracle. dont see it happening. dealerships are trying to save warranty money with the company losing money and are really going to be tight with what they let slide. whatever you do make sure you keep the ability to return to stock, preferably without leaving any trace.
