SVCummins, you said in Walters post....

It?s a 1998 3500 it?s build date is 3 of 98 but it?s a 24 valve cummins it?s has plus 50 hp injectors and an edge with attitude 5 stage programmer the flat bed is home made is 8 feet long and and 8 feet wide it has a tool box and a diesel compressor on it . My 94 3500 weighed 8500 with the same tool box and air compressor it would pull 650 miles gallons out of 33 gallon of fuel everytime . I just got home from hauling a 17,000 pound load 230 miles and averaged 13.55 mpg I was running 80 mph the whole way

So i have a 2000 F650 crew cab, 24v, stock, 11r22.5's 7 spd, air brakes, base line 225hp. But tips the scales at about 16,000 lbs. when its unloaded it runs great, put the trailer on it or the other day, i hauled 2, 6 row combine heads and it wouldnt hardly get out of its own way...gut-LESS....

So the guys over at DAP recommended 75 HP VCO type injectors and maybe a quadzilla tuner. I need to put a pyro on, i guess my question is what do you guys think of that recommendation? What little i know about the 5.9's doesnt help, but i read most people go with a SAC style instead of the VCO. just trying to get as many opinions as i can before i pull the trigger on anything....

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I thought i would do both injectors and tuner, that way i could increase mpg when i could. I dont know anybody with a tuner and with so many options out there, it makes it tough. I mean this is just a pulling truck with good AC so i dont know that a high end tuner is really what i need, i just need one that will turn power up when i need and dial it back when i dont.
I just wish i could see a tuner or two, or 3, before i spend the money to find out i dont like it haha

Timers are pretty speedy but if you get one thatí has the gauges with it then thatís one less thing to worry about

Injectors on these without a tuner wonít gain you a whole lot . Iím not sure what injectors this truck has as they and the programmer was in It when I bought the truck. with my edge tuner it has a display that shows trans temp ,manifold psi , egt and fuel psi it also lets me set the max exhaust temp which I set at 1250 it almost never goes that high .

You can get quite a bit with just tuner and not even worry about injectors
