I too mostly lurk through this site.
This site has been a fantastic resource. I think I'm going to have to donate some dough (sooner than later). Anyhow, I have an Ex. You can see the stuff I've done in my signature. After searching through this forum, and through the Cummins forum I've found that gauges, airflow, and fueling (progammers) make up the needed components that give your powerplant smart, reliable freedom. I can tell you that this recipe made a difference. I have taken several road trips, and have not had an issue w/ being underpowered. I also pay attention to fluids. There's been massive leaps forward in the area of lubricants. As for oil, I have been using the ValvolinePremiumBlueExtreme. This is the synthetic, and it seems to really work well. Smooth, less heat, and yes I believe it helps w/ fuel mileage. I also use MarvelMysteryOil w/ PowerService in every tank of fuel. 16oz of each per fill up. It's my opinion that this keeps all of the fueling components clean and lubed. I use purolator oil and fuel filters. Well, that's all I can think of, but if you plan on hauling yourself and family for long distances, exercise discernment in mods. Who cares if you can do some massive burn out... I'd rather ascend up the Raton Pass without downshifting, or drop out of overdrive and pass some donkey on the mobile phone who can't multi-task... Cheers.
