Re: Finally Got It!

the increase in MPG would be sweet. the 35 HP wouldnt be bad either even though it already has a ton of get up and go. I dont see any room for improvement on shifting but I am going to look into black Bear. I wonder if itll void my warranty?

I don't know, I'm bought and paid for 2004 so that's not a big concern for me. I just need a new lab top first as I am going to do the scan cable tune.

I have also read that because of the size of our injectors we need to run premium for best mpg

Thanks I like it a lot. I wasnt sure about the 6.0 but it seems to have plenty of power. I havent pulled anything yet but I think itll work well so I am not to upset about not getting the Dmax

speaking of warranty! If your truck is still in the manufacturer's warranty, you can buy the extended warranty. My white truck had a seven year warranty package (bumper to bumper), but as I said was only used once for a speedometer issue. A had cover on the back or a shell will usually gain two to three mpg on the highway.
