Superchips Microtuner

Just curious why the hp gain is so much greater on the 03-04 Powerstroke then the 05-06?

My guess is because the stock power was much lower in the earlier years. More power improvement potential.

Welcome Rollin, Mastercaster and Skeeter! Great to have ya here at PowerStroke,org! If the 03-04's have better hp gains I'd like to know why myself - I honestly didn't realize they did.
I run mine on the 100 tune every now and then just for kicks and it's just outrageous.

Oh come on Rodslinger, any good wrench knows that a winch on the front of a truck improves fuel economy. It's simple...The extra weight on the front bumper slightly lowers the front of the truck, increasing the aerodynamics of the truck and causing it to move more freely through the air with less resistance, therefore causing improved fuel economy. It's simple physics...lol
