6.0 van

This guy that i went shooting with today at the range has a 2006 6.0 ford van. He mainly wants economy but performance also. I told him the sct and exhaust didnt give me any fuel milage. I was wondering if one of those "on the fly" chips with economy and race tune would be good for him? How does on the fly work? how do u change the tune? any input?

99' CCSB tan f-250 auto 7.3L- SCT excaliber2 performance tune,removed WG redline, map fooler,intake,4" turbo back exhaust,egt gauge.

Alot of things would help economy. Tell him to come to terms with the fact that he has a big diesel van. hes going to get crappy MPG

As far as the 6.0 goes im not really sure there are many truly on the fly type programmers other than the edge juice attitude combo. However a good economy tune on an SCT will give better mileage. But the trick is too keep your foot out of the throttle

vans are different than trucks...it would be worth talking to a tuner about it to get the best opinions...id call DJ's diesel or DPP...someone who actually deals in the tunes..

The one thing I have found to be true about fuel econ,
2000 rpms is the magic number, dont go over it and the fuel econ can be amazing.
This is true weather you have a bone stock truck, or you have mods out the yen yang, also seems to be true for a 7.3
