With the combination of the programmer, CAI and exhaust I gained almost 4 MPG on the highway. Around town, between 2 & 3 MPG. I think it would be better but:

1. I don't drive slow and I know that even if I were to keep it under or at the speed limit I'd get a bit better mileage out on the highway.

2. Around town I am in second all the time and this big truck is too much fun to open up from time to time otherwise, yup you guessed it, the mileage would be better around town, too.

There are hundred, thousands DSP threads through the forums. FIY some early year 04's does not have tranny/shift options w/ the DSP. Mine was 11/03 and had zero TCM adjustments available.

REALLY? What was your before/after mpgs? With the new tires i'm averaging roughly 11.5-12, and NY's prices are starting to hurt a bit. Thinking if I invest 300 bucks in a DS i'd make that money back in 6 months...I think?

My HWY MPG was hovering around 10.5 to 11 or so. I didn't drive any differently then than I do now. My last trip down to one of my projects (518 miles, about 115 of it on twisty mountain roads and up grades) netted a 14.82 MPG.

Found my DSP used on Craigslist for $200! Can't beat that deal with a wet stick!
