Tuning a 214,000 miles stroker

Well my truck just hit 214,000 miles. I really want to tune it for fuel economy but I'm kinda worried because of the miles. What do you all think? Th truck is a 1997 f-350 crew cab long bed.

Do it and don't look back. If you have an auto think real hard about doing at least a valve body upgrade before the tuner.

My truck has 250k on it...someone has had a tuner on there for quite a while. Running strong so far...Crank case pressures ok at this time. and like superdute4x4 said...I run the hell out of mine, I'm sure it has a high number on the EGT scale as it has the stock down pipe and I pull a 30 ft gooseneck with at least 6500 lbs on occasion(sometimes an 8900lb kubota). Pulls it real well until the clutch slips...

Yeah the truck is an auto so I know I need to worry about the trans. I was thinking the 60hp tune from dp tuner.

I'd go with 80e personally. I had the 80e from DP in my SD and really liked it.

Jody's 80hp tune is HOT on a superduty.

But if you get a chip from him, dont just get one tune. Get a few that suit your wants/needs.

Typical cummins owner.

i bought my truck with 248k miles on it, and it already had a superchip installed. i have since installed a 6-pos TW chip, stage 1 injectors, d66 turbo, SD intercooler, 17* hpop, single mass flywheel, valair 500hp/1000ftlb clutch, tymar intake, 3" downpipe, 4" diamond eye straight pipe, and the truck now has 252k miles on it. it runs like a champ, way better than stock, much more power, idles smoother, and shows no signs of weakness. this is not a DD either, it's a tow rig, so it works for it's keep.
