Programmer Question

OK guys...I have a 1996 F250 Ext Cab 4-wheel drive automatic. I have a 3" downpipe to a straight pipe muffler delete. I also have the Tymar Intake, EGT Gauge and Turbo Boost Gauge. I currently run the Superchips 1705 Programmer usually on the middle tune "I think its called tow performance". I get around 17-18 MPG combined city highway. My question is this, I hear alot about Tony Wildman Chips. What kind of milage would I expect to get from one of his chips on the "Daily" or "Econo" tunes. Would it be better than my Superchip?
Any input would be great!!!!
I like a little performance also!!! Just in case I get picked on!!!!

Thanks,
Brad

I can't tell you if mileage will increase. I only had my chip for a week before upgrading injectors, so i really don't know. Mose people concur, mileage will depend on driving style. My mileage has stayed the same as when I was running the SCT on stock injectors. You would not belive the difference in the programming, though. Tony's tunes will make the truck run a lot smoother over the SCT.
