any other mods to boost mpg?

i have an 08 f350 and have done all basic mods to boost mpg.
-tuner
-dpf delete
-exhaust
and im still not happy with the gains, i had a 05 with 6.0l and I found the gains much better after these basic mods.
is there any other mods to help assist in getting better mpg?
thanks for all the help

What tuner? EGR delete?

You can always lower it, get skinnier wheels, and get those awesome fender covers for the back...

Lol don't you mean egr?!? Egr will kinda, but 6.4's aren't economy trucks. Just being honest with you.. a 6.0 will get way better milage then the 6.4

What kind of mileage are you getting right now? and what were you getting with your 6.0?

the 6.4s aren't known for good mileage. It has to do with the dual turbos. They move a ton of air and therefore use a lot of fuel...

Anything to move the air in and out more effeciently should help. CAC pipe, Egr delete w/ Elbow, Ported intake mani, 6.0 or RCD exhaust mani's, downpipe (if you havent replaced the stock one)
