Default Anyone tuned and kept MDS ?

Hey, all. In need of assistance, here. I have used the "Search" function, but still not able to find an answer to my basic questions

I bought my '08 Ram 1500 quad cab 5.7L Hemi used last November.
It came with duals aftermarket, a K&N CAI....and a 13.5MPG on 89 octane gas addiction.

I now am improved to 14.5-15MPG, locally, as long as I baby the hell out of it, but would sure like to see another +2 or +3MPG.

Have been reading, here, and elsewhere, and getting conflicting messages about buying/using a tuner with the MDS system+torque converter clutch.

Has anyone tuned their Ram and KEPT the MDS? Gas mileage improvement noted? How much?
What tuner best for the Ram, and what basic settings?

I'm sure this has been covered before, so I apologize in advance...all help and advice much appreciated , though.
