best tunes and from who

Ordering the hydra later. Was curious who offered the best tunes for economy and daily driving

I know my truck with everything I've got and driving will be totally different than others. Just wanted to see what kind of mileage people were getting and from who.

Tony, gearhead, beans, etc....

Truck is a 99 f250 cc 4x4 auto

I know there's some of you guys running these tunes. Looking for solid shifting and just all around no issues economy and daily. If it actually helps with mileage great

I'm confused about this hydra chip. You can get any tuning from anyone like beans gear head and so on? Like the tunes they offer for ts or did they make there own separate tunes for the hydra?

All good tuners ( all you meantioned) along with a light foot makes good mpgs. A heavy foot and you wont see much difference in mpg savings. Alot has to do with driving habits and style.

That's what I was saying about will be different from others trucks and driving. Only time I have my foot in it is passing even then it's moderate nothing heavy
For daily and economy tunes wasn't sure if any of the guys tunings were better than the others

Re: best tunes and from who

Everyone will have the tuner they like, there isn't any independent controlled tests of tunes or chips. So pick one and give it a try.

We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

Dealer for: Full Force, Tymar, BTS, Icon, Pure Performance, TW tunes, just to name a few.

Only problem is is that it's 400+ "pick and try" choice. No disrespect it's just a hard choice and an expensive one

Re: best tunes and from who

I sure like my PHP tunes. Compared to stock, the shifting is the biggest improvement. Sure, there's more power but daily driving I don't need all the power but I love the quick shifts that seem to happen at the logical times when I would make the shift if I had a manual.
