Thanks for all the feedback. I'm on my fourth tank running the 87 tune with 87 octane, and my truck seems to really start liking it. My fuel economy has improved quite a bit, I'm averaging around 12 in the city, 15-16 on the freeway going around 75mph, and my economy is maxed around 60mph where I get around 18mpg! BUT, as you all point out, the best part is certainly the acceleration and improved shifting points this thing has done for my truck. It's a blast. When I really step on it, with the tuner and the amount of air my truck sucks in with that Volant CAI, it roars, and you can hear that CAI real well. Can't believe I waited this long to do this.

Anyways, I will switch to the 91 tune and run 91+ octane at some point in the next few months and let you folks know how it turns out.
