DIY tymar intake (use some 3" exhaust pipe and a FIL6637 from napa)
Dp tuner chip (you can get several switch on the fly tunes, all of which will help with mileage)
203 degree thermostat-dieselsite.com has them, every little bit helps
free flowing exhaust (MBRP, or Diamond eye 4" will lower EGT's and increase mileage)
and a 6.0 intercooler-not really for the mileage benefit, but it'll keep the truck running cooler. Maybe try a water/methanol injection setup-They help with mileage. I'd also recommend a valve body, or at least a good shift kit.
DEFINATELY get an EGT gauge/transmission temp. Despite increasing economy, you will be adding power-even a conservative tow tune will make a huge difference.
Other than that, make sure everything is in good working order-maintenance up to date, no leaks, etc.
The only benefit to ANYTHING banks sells over what is listed, is that you can tell people you have a banks kit and they'll know what you're talking about. Banks off the shelf parts are overpriced, and for the most part inferior to the options listed.
