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

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...
