After market tunes (advice)

I have a 2014 F250 with ready lift and 35's. H&S mini maxx and 5" flo pro back exhaust. EGR block plates installed. Still averaging about 14 mpgs. Is there any aftermarket tunes I could download/install for better fuel mileage and performance than the regular H&S Can tunes.

Tunes

Not many have delete tunes out test for the 2014. I do know that punch it performance does for the SCT not sure about your mini max. Also check with SPE or Rudy's. I have a 2014 as well but I think I am going to wait awhile to delete it, your a brave man haha.

Tunes

I appreciate it. Yea, I already had 10k miles on it with no problems, figure the emissions system crap will cause more harm to the motor the longer I leave it on there. Hopefully, I don't have any catastrophic failures, I can deal with a failed turbo or something like that.

Snyder Performance or Gearhead get my vote, I know they have tunes for the 13s so I'm sure they have tunes for the 14s.

I think tunes that work on a 2013 will be available for a 2014. I'm not sure about better mileage than 14 MPG though. At least, not for me anyway. I've used H&S tunes and now I use Gearhead tunes. My mileage went down after my delete. I can't seem to figure out why, but I know my truck goes fast now...

Just wait till your engine breaks in bud I never got over 13.5 till I hit 15000 and that's with towing a lot now I see upwards of 18-19 on the freeway and 14-15 stop light to stop light if you want to improve mileage in the meantime pick up some motorcraft cetane booster and use as directed you will be very happy with it

I have a 2014 ccsb 4x4 and the best that I have seen is 15.1 and the truck has 2,600 miles on it. This is with the stock 31" tall tires and 3.31 gear ratio. I figured it would do better than that with the tire gear combo ( which isn't staying ) tires are to freakin small.

I have a couple different tunes, and the Gearhead tunes are hands down the best IMO.
