  4. What a Powerstroke is for, Towing and Hauling
    I have just gotten a 2004 Excursion with the 6L. It will be a family hauler that will occasionally tow a 5000 lb trailer. I want to maximize fuel economy daily and then be able to turn up the power when needed. Which tuner will allow me to switch back and forth and meet my goals? Thx!

  7. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    I have a 2001f350 cclb 4x4 and I remember getting 17.75 mpg. I take excellent care of the truck and change oil every 3,000 and use the more expensive synthetic. I took it to the dealer because the toque converter check valve was bleeding the transmission in the summer, no issue other than it...
