I have to say with the 87 is has better acceleration but.my main thing is I am getting 2mpg better without the mds and the truck is a lot smoother to drive without it coming on and off.constantly
I just have one question:
Most everybody claims an increase in fuel economy, are those numbers based on the dash readout or actually calculated?
I never had a tuner on a gas truck. I did have tuners on my two diesel Rams and the MPG gauge was always very optimistic withe the tuner, however, I never gained any real mpg's. I ahd SC, Banks, and Smarty at different times.
The way I see it, if you have more power AND use it you'll pay the price by losing mpg's. Simple physics!
