For the 4.7... Bullydog GT. I love mine. Pretty simple install and noticeable increase in hp. Felt like I had a new engine in my truck. As for mpg, I went from having to refuel late in the week to sometimes lasting all week, depending upon how pedal happy I get. I definitely get better gas mileage, but I buy higher octane for the high octane tune and I tend to probably burn up any gains when a chevy or ford is in the side view mirror and I prefer them in the rear view mirror.

Bottom line I probably save a little gas or break even while being able to stomp on it more often, so I think it's a win/win. I also love the way it sounds compared to before. A nice, even, throaty powerful growl and I have yet to do the CAI or exhaust. Having the gauges also is nice, and I still haven't even tried the other functions yet. Too busy enjoying the ride, I guess.

I can only give the estimates for the Superchips options. Outstanding gains thus far. Whole new truck.
