Best Fuel Mileage Chip/Programmer?

OK fellas here is the deal....

Go with either DP Tuner, or a Tony Wildman(Total Diesel Performance) chip. A custom tuned chip will definitely perform wayyyyyyyyyyy better then a TS chip.

I personally would go with Tony Wildman.


And definitely get gauges. At least an EGT gauge. It is definitely a BADDD idea to run a chip without at least an EGT gauge.



Hope that helps man
