i have an 85 f250, 2wd 4 speed and 6.9, i love it. there are not many things to do to increase mileage but you could do and exhaust system and intake. that is number one for better fuel economy. if you are willing to spend the money, you can also re-gear the rear end to a lower gear ratio

oh yeah, that is a hell of a deal. i have a 3" single stack on my truck and i love how it sounds. it has that deep v8 tone and gets a nice pop at higher rpm.
