I just put one in my truck a few weeks ago. I'm running the 91 octane tune, highway mpg is 22/23, back and forth from work and around town is 18/19. I haven't seen any change in MPG. The tunner really woke up that motor!

Maybe the flashpaq tricks the computer to tell me it gets better mpg, I didn't figure it out manually, maybe i should!!

the 91 octane tune is awesome! stright from the tuner it woke the truck up, after the computer learns it a bit more, it should be even better. wish i would have gotten the flashpaq earlier

So this "Flashpaq" is made by who and it is available for the 2007 4.7L v/8? how much did it set you back and how easy is it to use, install, etc...???

I think I paid $350 on AutoAnything.com and it can't get any easier to use unless you have someone else plug it into your OBDII and select your setting. It will suggest that you plug into a computer with internet to get the latest download, then about 10 minutes to upload into your truck. Check out the website and see if they have one for your truck.
