Get a chip I would use Dp Tuner they offer economy tunes and you can get some off the wall ones like a 120race for when 5 o clock traffic pisses you off

Re: 2003 f-250 6.0 MPG

I never bought a chip for my 04 6.0 crew cab 2wd 6ft bed and I got 18mpg city 20-23 hwy running 80-90, I have got the 60e and 80eon my dp chip for my 7.3 my 80 made me go from 15 to 18.5 almost 19 mpgs for a lifted 4x4 truck.. I think thats saying something, Ive heard the stock airfilters are some of the best on the 6.0 but I wouldnt just take that and roll do some more research k&n always advertises more power and better filtration

Tuning - Ford Powerstroke 6.0L
the first 1 you order there
personally dps parts seem high rosewood diesel has some good stuff and jim seems to be a cool guy

Phalanx Console
this you you have to find a dealer dealer locator is on the site

I came back and edited this dp only offers sct flash programmers for the 6.0 not a chip
