I have almost exactly the same question. I am considering getting a PSD for towing my new boat. I currently have a 90 F150 with a straight 6. It makes a lot of torque obviously, but not the kind I need for towing the boat. Also its a regular cab so we need to take two vehicles to the lake every time.
I am considering a 99-01 250 or 350 four door. Any guesstimates on fuel mileage and the best things to improve it. Any brands of tuners or exhaust to stay away from.
I was looking at the triple programmer from bully dog....
fuel milage seems to vary truck to truck
15- 20 empty
bully dog wont be your best choice..
look into dp or tw chip
these are custom made for your truck..
much better choice shift points will be much better for autos.
