Again... Gonefishin nailed it. Those 3 working in conjunction with one another give a decent noticeable improvement, enough to put a smile on yourself.

What muddy53 said can also be true to a point but let's face it. We are under 4th gen performance mods looking at a tuner thread so these tuners CAI's and TB's have already weaseled their way into our brains at this point for most of us.

A tuner can hurt the truck if done wrong so muddy53 can be right but done right it can net you enough power to satisfy and possibly enough mpg's to satisfy aswell. Custom tune is the way to go. You get ur custom tune, install it and run it, your Tuner guy will usually ask you to run it for a week or so and then make a log to send him so he can see what's going on in the engine after its settled in with your driving habits, then he will tweak it if needed to maximize the potential while at the same time not taking it to the point of causing damage.

I got my T1000 with the hemifever custom tune setup very happy with the power, very happy with the post sale support and my daily MPG's jumped from a consistent 14.2 to a consistent 17.4 that's 3.2 mpg's! As muddy53 said it'll take a while for MPG gains alone to pay for the tuner but your first week experiencing your truck after the install will be more than enough to justify the $$$ which in this case can buy happiness!!!
