Best upgrade?

I have a 06 F250 with a 6.0 (150,000) miles on it. I've done a cat delete, egr delete and a diablo tuner on it. What would be a good upgrade I could do to it to improve mpg's and performance. Thanks for any input.

Remove the Diablo and go with a custom tuned SCT like this: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tuning

youll also want to monitor your temps so i recommend this combo kit: http://stealth-automotive.com/index....roduct_id=1386

Thanks for the quick response. What about a cold air intake? Brand?

You need to get some gauges. Forget everything else you need to monitor that engine.

What brand/type of gauges do you guys reccomend. I assume you mean Fuel pressure, oil temp and oil pressure? I see several upgrades about a blue spring. Benefits? Thanks

I'm a fan of Edge Insight CTS, you'll find many ppl here that are happy with them as well. Has a bigger screen which allows you to monitor more things at one and still be able to read them. I'd also get the expandable version so you can monitor things like EGT's, etc. Well worth the money in my opinion.

Suggest a coolant filter if you don't already have one. Your oil cooler will thank you

x3 on the CTS

Another happy Insight CTS customer. Definitely the best bang for buck considering the price, future expandability, and number of parameters monitored.
