Newby help

Got a 2000 F250 crew cab with manual and 3.75, stock everything. Getting 18.9-19mpg solo and 12 or so towing a 5600 lb trailer. I have been looking at chips or tuners to improve torque and mileage, but all the info out there is too confusing. Everybody says they have the best and baddest system. How about someone with experience on mild improvements in power and mileage at reasonable cost? I just want a street truck with better performance than stock... not that the stock is so bad!

dp or ts. I like the flip chip the best becuase you can switch on the fly and see which setting works best for you. In my opinion everyone is going to say they have tje best one and so on and so on, its all about what fits your needs the best. This is a great site though. alot of smart guys on here. Welcome, you will enjoy.

I have a 97 7.3 and the only performance mod i have is a turbo back exhaust and it sounds great and noticed an increase in MPG. I think intake and exhuast first make sense. then go from there. I got the Stack but you can do the DIY intake and Turboback Exhaust for... less than 400bux i think. Thats if u dont get the Chrome stack like i did that cost 300 bux by itself
