    Do these ebay Performance Chips work? Not worried about hp increase but a few mpg would be helpful. I seen these chip from $10 to several hundred. Any insight?

    Dont go cheapo... They are dirty tuning and for the most part a waste of money. Either go with a custom tuned programmer or something like an edge ez or superchips. Pretty light on hp gain but increase mpg by a few. What kind of truck by the way?

    In this case you do get what you pay for. I know nothing about old Fords. Join a ford diesel forum.
