Best setting for TS 6pos??

I have a 01 7.3 with a TS 6 pos chip, and a srp1 hpop. Trying to figure out what the best setting would be to run on the chip to obtain maximum fuel economy. I know that with the srp1 if the chip isn't up above 40hp it doesn't get enough oil to the pump and the truck starts running rough. Is that supposed to happen? I would love some idea's and comments! Thanks

the truck should run fine on any setting with a higher volume pump, even stock tuning. so something is wrong.

you should net the best mileage on 75 or 100hp settings.

Every truck is different. The best thing to do is hand calculate a full tank with each chip setting. The HPOP shouldn't matter as stated above. Do you have a bigger turbo? If so then yes, you'll need to run at 50HP to keep milage up.

Best setting for me is the 3rd click.

3rd click being what?

We dont all have the same chip and i highly doubt many of us have the same settings in the same exact positions.

Care to elaborate on what your 3rd click might be?

Sorry, haha. The 75hp setting for daily driving works great for me.

I suggest talking to who ever wrote your tunes for the Ts Chip.
Most custom tunes usually take into account the add-on's and upgrades you've done to your truck. I guess, i'm also curious how your upgraded HPOP isn't getting enough oil, or how you know it's the HPOP that's the cause?
How do you know it's not the fuel delivery or an injector?

I LOL'd when I saw this. Not everyone's third click is the same tune as yours.

Don't listen to these guys. Mine is the 3rd click as well. But it's my 100hp setting.
