programer for mileage, a little more power?

my Dad wants to get better mileage and some more power from his 06. whats the best programer for that? I've read a little bit about the Smarty but that seems like it's for serious hp makers. he's not looking to install gauges, do any of the Dodge programers moniter the engines vitals? sorry for all the questions I'm a Ford guy

Smarty Sr on SW#1 is good as well as the Quadzilla Mileage Max.

does the Quadzilla Mileage Max add any power? it doesn't say so on their website. it's like half the price of the Smarty Jr, which looks like a nice product. thanks

I had the Quadzilla XZT on my 06 for a few years and had great luck with it. I gained around 1.5-2mpg's and dyno'd at 364 hp and 844lbs with it (it is rated at 65hp but It obviously put out more, on my truck anyway). I then went with the Diablo Predator and my power and mileage shot up, 4-5 mpg over stock on the 100hp level. It was just crazy on the 160 hp level and I liked it but it was making my truck act funny so I traded it off for a Smarty SR. It (Smarty sr.) gets about 2.5 mpg's over stock mileage but has a really good power curve. I dyno'd with it on Level 9 at 465 hp which is right in line with their h.p. claims. On a side note, I have not been able to go over 1350 degrees on the EGT no matter how hard I try on any level with the Smarty and to get to 1300 you have to REALLY try.

My Quad MM did nothing for power. The XZT helps the power & mileage. I have a MM just sitting on a shelf. It was on my 06.If he wants to go that route pm me.
