Well, you'll lose mileage with lift/tires.
But intake and exhaust are most common for mileage gain. Not much though.

The DIY intake (Tymar intake, 6637 intake) is the most common.
For exhaust, idk. I just used a free flowing muffler from Walker. The Walker BigTruckMuffler.

I have a 2000 f250 myself get a 4in exhaust and a afe stage 2 air filter that'll make your mpgs jump up a lil. Lift and tires will drain it a lil but depending on how you drive it/ how big the lift is it won't be that much.

Do you have gauges yet? If not, they are recommended before tuning the vehicle.

Our Infinity unit will program tunes, and work as gauges. It will also run diagnostic tests, read/clear DTC's, datalog, and much more. Check it out HERE if you are interested in something like that.

Let me know if you have any questions.
