    When it comes out(nope,none are avail yet) it will not be a chip, it will be a plug in tuner.......I'll be the one waiting on "tuning software" for the lap top. Once out, "project 500HP" begins

    Is this tuner going to improve MPG or make it worse?? I have a friend with a Ford F-250. He put a chip in his and is getting 24 mpg on the highway and about 18-19 on local roads. I'd like to see that kind of mpg on my '07 Crew Max!!

    Anyone contacted Unichip to find out if they are working on something for us? Since they had a chip for the 06, I figured they would be the first to do something on the 07's. I might have to give them a call...

    If Toyo used the same rear gear as the Ford you would see those numbers without a chip/program edit.
    The first vendor to offer a 3:42/3:70 type RPM gear will turn the truck world upside down.Imagine running 70 mph and turning 13-1500 rpm 26-28 mpg

    No offense but those numbers just don't seem realistic for an F250, even if it is a diesel. When I chipped my powerstroke, I used one of the best economy burns on the market and best ever was 21MPG. Is your buddy's truck a 4x4?

    I'm getting close to this mileage with my Tundra and don't need to deal with the noise, big $$$ oil changes, CPS sensors, transmissions, sloppy front ends, rattles, etc, etc (ooops, sorry forgot this isn't one of the ford bashing threads...)

    I have to agree with you on this one...my cummins averaged in the low 17s unloaded and believe me, I drove it easy for mileage....Once in a short while I could get on the guage 19, but it would never last. Trucks just are not high mileage vehicles...yet...I am waiting for the small fuel effecient 1/2 diesels in 2009....

    Initial testing on the new v8 cummins for the 1/2 dodge came in in the low 20s...

    I too chipped (actually reprogrammed) an F250. Eventhough the onboard computer display said I was getting 23-24mpg, I was actually only getting around 16-17 mpg when I did the manual computation each time I filled up. Still not bad for a truck that large and heavy- but nowhere near 24 mpg!

    There would/should be plenty of grunt with either set,the mpg/rpm diff would be seen when it steps thru the double OD.I would prefer the 3:70 set in order to allow for some "pull" from the bottom end of 5th. Which would allow for easily exceeding 140+mph forward motion

    Without access to my ratio tables,its all delusional speculation

    I chipped my excursion and best I got was 21mpg highway, now this is the 7.3psd. In my SOLD F350 dually, I ran it chipped, CAI, and propane injection and got as high as 18mph which is pretty good for the dually long bed. I hear that the 6.0 may get a little better than that but not 24mpg. Keep in mind that chipping a diesel is not the same as a gasser. Diesel are infamous for not totally burning igniting all the fuel being squirted in by the injectors, therefore chipping it makes it more effiecient by increase the turbo boost (holding wastegate close longer), allowing for more air to combust the diesel fuel. This was either loaded or unloaded.Usually combining that with CAI, helps the system even more. In a gas vehicle, remapping the computer usally allows more fuel to be squirted into the injector and making the MAF sensor dump more air, causing more Hp but lower gas mileage. I guess the equivalent of stomping your gas pedal all the time.
