Default Programmer?

HI, i am new to this forum. I have a 2001 2500 with the 8.0 V-10. It is pretty much stock aside from the leveling kit, wheels and tires. I am wondering what mods you all would reccommend? I have been thinking about a programmer to increase torque, horsepower and maybe mileage. I am getting about 9 mpg right now. I have about 56K miles on it.

I have searched all over and can not find a chip or programmer any ideas where to look?

Torrie at unleashed tuning is the v-10 SRT tuning guru...look into his SCT tuner they can program up to 3 different tunes depending on your mods or what you like.....have heard nothing but fantastic things about them and this weekend I will have my installed aftyer a first round of mods......

SCT Xcal or the Diablo, its really preference. Both come with canned tunes for your truck and provide impressive gains in all aspects. Take it to a tuner with a dyno and he can dial it in perfectly with the A/F, shift points etc etc.

i have not found a tuner specific for the truck v10 which is drastically different from the srt10 engines. one thing i do highly recommend is atleast a k&n filter or even a cold air intake just do youre homework and try to find one that actually seals to the hood to keep hot air out and then also exhaust. that will make a pretty big difference in youre v10

I'm pretty much in the same situation: I've got a 96 3500, 10,500 with a V-10. I've had it awhile and I normally get about 9 around town and to and from work. I occasionally get 12 if I'm on the highway running 55. at todays fuel price I need to up the mileage if possible. I've rebuilt the Autotrans and put in a K&N I'm stuck on 9 MPG.
