no problem man, i like seeing your work so ill stay on the thread.

as for the programmers go, on a diesel motor you will see the best fuel mileage will come on the high setting. not the econmy setting. here is an example if you have a truck going up a hill with a 300hp tune you barely put your foot down and it will go right up it with ease. using less fuel. now do the same with a stock truck or low hp setting it takes more throttle to get there therefor using more fuel. also the extra power is great when you need it. if you tow a bunch throw it on a tow setting and towing is awesome. the power of the diesel world is crazy now a days. if you never had a tuner you have no idea what your missing out on. but you also gotta remember with extra power ads extra stress to the truck so you cant be stupid. but thats where the good saying you gotta pay to play comes in.

if you get a tuner for a 6.0 get a sct tuner with custom tunes. i got mine from quick tricks automotive ask for vivian. if you tow a lot put it to the tow tune. if your not gonns be towing change it to the performnce tune and let it rip.
