Chip or programmer?

I'm a 7.3 guy posting for my grandpa. He as a 2010 one ton single rear wheel and pulls an enclosed trailer loaded about 12000 and a 30 ft 5th wheel. His truck is bone stock with 40000 miles. He is looking for something to increase is fuel milage and maybe a little get up and go while pulling without hurting anything. What are some good programmers out there that won't break the bank or the truck

First question is does he keep on keeping it bone stock? Aka deleting the dpf or leaving it factory? That's the first thing you want to know as picking which tuner would be best budget wise will vary depending on that. Dpf delete tuners are usually significantly more expensive but also well worth it, if planning on doing that mod.

Valid points ^^^ However, save yourself the time and delete if you run a tuner. I don't think there is anything good going to happen by running a tuned truck with the DPF in place.....except a ton of regens. Buy a H&S, and don't look back.

Plus he would get a lot better mileage! And the reliability & longevity of the truck would be better!

Also can you get a dpf delete without doing a full exhaust because he wants to keep the exhaust pretty close to stock cause he wants to keep it quiet

If he's not deleting don't tune it. Leave it 100% stock. When warranty runs out delete and tune it.

Just a cat/dpf delete pipe will keep the truck pretty quiet.
