Tuner, DPF/Cat delete, and cold air intake for starters. I recommend Spartan for the tuning. We have some awesome specials going on right now that might be worth looking in to. They are listed on our home page.

Keeping the boost low when taking off from a stop helps allot. Keeping your rpm below 2000, speed, will help. You are below the average on mileage.

I would assume he has 4.10 gears, which ain't going to help with fuel mileage period. The truck could have 3.73's being a 2010 though....not sure.

Is your truck also an F-350 DRW like his?

That is your problem, along with the truck being bone stock.

This valentine special is awesome but Iím a little disappointed that there isnít a dpf/cat delete option rather than just the dpf delete. I just donít have the funds to go the whole route as the other packages offer, not to mention I donít want to change out the entire exhaust system anyway. SighÖ..just have to keep looking I suppose.
