Cool Diesel head, new to powerstroke, a few questions

First of all the question on everyones mind, fuel economy.What are the best programmers? I need a programmer, and the right setup (exhaust, intake, deletes....) to not destroy my paycheck at the pump. Furthermore, what are the weak points, and typical issues?

Seems like tuners for these trucks are more performance oriented first and then focused on fuel economy second. Most people are only seeing a few MPG difference. If you're solely looking for improved fuel economy from a tuner, exhaust, CAI, EGR delete, etc., you might as well just put that couple thousand towards buying diesel as it will take a long time to pay for itself through fuel savings.

Weak points on these trucks are the radiators and rad hoses. I've had a few upper and lower rad hoses replaced under warranty.
