Hard #'s with tuners

Hello all, am looking at the DP soon but have not seen anything really as far as B4 and after numbers for any of the tuners as far as MPG increase's(have seen some 4-6 mpg gain post w/superchips) or performance times as in 0-60 or 1/4 mile stock vs tuned.Would like to know what kind of gains to expect for mpg when not hotfootin it and when mashing on it what type of improvement's to expect performance wise over stock.

you never realy see hard numbers because every truck is different so they all respond differently to tuneing but youll wont be unhappy and the dp tuner is money well spent

Yes sir I understand each truck responds differently, just looking for a rough ballpark as to what to expect.Have a buddy w/ a duramax and he claims with his tune to be nearly twice as quick as stock was. Just in awe I reckon that a few tweaks here and there can make that big of an improvement.

I did some 0-60 mph tests a few years ago with off the shelf tuners and chips, stock It was around 15 seconds and "tweaked" it was around 9 seconds. Another guy I know did similar tests with very similar results. Mileage will depend more on driver discipline than anything, most folks will see a slight drop because they like to use the extra power.

yeah man. i used to make 19mpg avg in the Ex, put the chip in the 80street and now im making 12mpg avg. I make much better at 55mph on cruise but the huge drop is because i think i added about 10 pounds onto my right foot. just cant seem to keep it off the floor

B4 chip
55mph Hwy avg 21mpg
With chip
55mph Hwy avg 24mpg

I'm a college kid so im in a nearly all city set up 8( and i just started having the ability to smoke . . . so im kind of an outlier
