crucial upgrades for economy?

So I've had my f350 for a few months now and its time to start with some mods. I just ordered an AFE stage2 airbox and filter and I'd like to do exhaust in the next 6 months or so (I'm thinking the banks kit for turbo back) then a tuner after that.

Do I have my cart before the horse? Should it be tuner first? Really after economy first and any performance boosts that come with it. Cheers.

i would do a diamond eye or MBRP kit, they are half the price of the banks.

and before you get a chip you need gauges. at least egt then trans temp if you have an auto, and boost is nice too.
then when you need a chip get a custom tuned chip from php, dp tuner, tony wildman, gearhead take your pick.

Do intake, exhaust, and gauges. After those are complete, then it would be a good time to invest in a chip and tunes.

Feel free to contact me if we can help you out with your tuning needs.
