need some advice.

I just bought a 2005 F-250 supercab 4x4, 6.0, auto. not lifted,truck is stock other than 305-70-17 Nitto tires. I'm getting 13 mpg now around town. I would like to get a sct sf3 I think? I have been trying to find out what tunes it has on it? I don't want to race I just want a little more power,and fuel milage. and of course reliability. And also what is the best air filter system for it? I had a 2004 and had an airaid on it, is there one better or is it just as good as any other? and where is the cheapest place to buy these two items? thank's need all the info I can get to help make my mind up.

Leave the stock intake, it is the best for up to 450-500hp. I'd contact Eric at Innovative Diesel about tunes, he comes very highly recommended.

if you are wanting just mileage stick with the canned tunnes, so you can just buy an sf3 off of ebay that is unlocked and mabey used and save your self two hundred bucks. as for the intake leave it stock like said. the only other thing i would do is exhaust, it can help with mpg also. not much but anything helps

Just another 6leaker Thanks to RCD
