Bully Dog is compatible with the 2011 and 2012 4.7l, with the 91+ tune they say 30+ hp gains. I just installed the 91+ tune and find its really nice, shift points on the transmission are so much better.

09 4.7 Airaid CAI and Superchip tuner. 91 octane really boosts power and shift points but will cost a little on fuel economy. I usually stay on stock tune unless I want to play or tow something. With CAI and stock tune I can get 22mpg according to dash computer. Would like to see what the 93 octane tune will do but cant find 93 fuel here.
Never could get the Airraid box to seal properly and it made God awful noise until I fabricated a lid for it. Now it sounds like a big ole 4barrel when you get into it.

I(and most people) get the best fuel economy with the performance tunes. I get about 16/17 city depending on conditions and 20+ hwy. I have gotten 22.5mpg avg on a hwy trip at like 65mph. I'd say 20mpg is easy though. I also have a quad cab and heavy AT tires on aftermarket wheels.

^yes the superchips tunes are the best for the 08+ 4.7 from my experience. I have tried superchips canned tunes, diablo canned tunes, and a diablo custom tune, and I went back to the superchips(the custom tune was ~ equal from what I could tell).

Whenever you are ready to purchase your tuner let me know I would be more than happy to get one out to you at the lowest prices on the net!

Thanks
