6.4 upgrade

I am interested in a regen delete. I have a 08 350 crewcab 6.4 shortbed 4x4 and am getting 9.4 miles to the gallon around town. I have about 650 miles on it and need better mileage. My 06 dodge 3500 was getting 14.5 around town.
Is the kem performance a good choice or should I wait for sct to come out. I really am not intersted in power just more fuel mileage.

Right now the KEM is the only one that works. But you loose your warranty

I have 08 250 with the same specs as your 350. With 10,000 miles on the truck, my mileage has improved to around 15 mpg around town.

There is no way a truck is going to pick up 5 mpg around town just from break in.

Well even at 10,000 miles thats not a break in yet......but to be honest it all depends on traffic and your right foot....you keep those turbos quiet and you get decent mileage, but I know thats a little hard too do... to answer your first question the KEM does improve mileage, but again thats on your right foot....I CAN get 23 MPG and up on the mileage, but I see 15 to 17 usually

Mine has 82,000 miles on it and it is just now loosning up some. But with the KEM I am seeing 11.7 and as high as 13.6 on the lie-o-meter and 10.9 on hand held with towing great distances over sotheastern moutainous terrain with 20K on board. Even with the stalling at idle thats its been doing lately. I too was not worried about power just fuel savings , but it is nice to blow an unloaded cummins or duracrap off the road with 3 big trucks on board -- I love it
and they yell on the cb - be carefull that ford aint gonna last runnin her like that , but I just reply hey she's set on 67 cruise and is still in overdrive - :fawkdance:
