You need to try some SCT files with the PHP FICM tuning. Your PCM strategy is one of the better ones to use.

Re: is there a better strategy code for hp-mpg

If you are asking whether or not you should do a roll back to an earlier strategy, the answer is no. The VXCF4** strategies are one of the best for fuel economy and power. Mine is VXCF4HB. Like mentioned above, you need some custom SCT tunes and some FICM tuning. I would recommend you try Vivian's Looney Wild. It is next on my list to try out and I hear it gets GREAT fuel economy with mild mannered driving.

- Replaced with VXAM7xx

2004:

VXBC9xx
- Replaced with VXBC6xx

2005+:
VXCF7xx
VXCF9xx
- Replaced with VXCF4xx (Or occasionally VXCF0xx)

You may not need to. Do you already have a tuned FICM? I'm still on PHP's list(well at least i hope cause it's been over 2 months) for a rollback, but i was waiting to get eric's extreme x tune until i had my truck rolled back. Come to find out...Eric told me that because i already have a tuned FICM that i didn't hafta wait...he can do it through the tune itself. My strategy was VXAP2B2, but when he sent me his extreme x(with rollback)...my strategy changed to VXAN2N0 i believe.
