at least you got your $$ back. I wouldnt want someone expecting 1-3mpg... and whoever told you that or where ever you read that it just wouldnt ever be true. 3mpg on a 7mpg average is HUGE and simple physics (the size of your rig) will tell you that can never be true. Yet you like to cite that anamoly. I would side with UP simply because you didnt provide factual data to back your sour grape claims.

UP threads dominated this forum for a long time, Interest is always high in improving power and gas mileage. After 6 years or so, I can't remember what my butt dyno felt and I have no idea if my mileage would have been the same. Would I do it again? Probably not but then I would not buy the same coach today that I bought then. One size does not fit all. If I was near their Washington shop I might have them update the unit if they thought it would make any difference.

There are many performance chips.. If, I ever invest in one it will be the ULTRA POWER already described in this thread (By the way I have the same engine) The other good one is the Banks system (Way more expensive)

These are both proven, in both cases the companies that do the work stand behind their customers.

There are many cheaper chips out there... And there are many stories from folks who have used them.. Blown engines, holy pistons (Have holes in them) this applies to both GM engines and FORD by the way.

But UP and Banks.. Are proven good ones.

Food for thought

If there were six add ons that would boost your gas mileage by at least 1 mile per gallon, and you installed each one, would you gain six miles per gallon?
