milage increase with delete and tune

If i were to delete and tune 6.7 with a new mini maxx street, does anyone know what kind of milage increase i would see. I know the street tuners aren't out yet but what kind of increase did you see with the old h&s? I'm trying to convince my dad to delete and tune his but nothing I said persuaded him enough to ruin his warranty. only a significant fuel milage increase, power increase, or engine life longevity would make him do it.

Well he will see everything you mentioned above. Mileage increase. Power increase and increased longevity of motor.

I saw a increase of 3mpg highway.
My buddy had a increase of 7 mpg highway.

He will be able to tune for more power with the new tuners, but not be able to delete anything with them. The ONLY possible gain would be in power, nothing for mileage or engine life. I can about guarantee it will decrease engine life.

I think he was saying more power then stock. H&S had 200 HP gains on the 6.7 and 300HP gains on the 6.4

It would be nice for us if they did. Unfortunately that is very hard on families. I would not want to have to move out of America to do business. Plus lets keep jobs in America and not outsource.

I agree with BIG on this...as much I would like the tuner companies to find a way around the EPA/NAZI bullshoot, I would rather these businesses stay in the U.S.

I am sure that there will be an answer to the delete issues...eventually...just be patient.

I have faith that our great country and it's great minds are not disappearing as fast as it seems to be...
