Ummm....

Not great but I'm always "deep in it" lol. 14.3 is my average but I'm running 10 ply LT33x12.50r20 too. I could get better but I don't really worry about mileage very much.
You should keep the powerstroke and give that some socal tunes...I bet Shawn is game!

I'd take a 6.7 deleted and tuned over a tuned Ecoboost. Ridiculously mean sound and turbo whistle.

I shall be Socal tuned shortly.
And I want to add something, shawn worked his *** off on a Saturday to get my tunes settled. We ran into a little bump, but he got it fixed. His customer service is second to none. Thanks Shawn!

I'm still waiting for my 87 tow tune so I can't post on what I get towing my boat. 2 days ago I made a quick 50 mile trip to a neighboring town-all interstate. Drove 75 all the way there and back-got 21.5 mpg. My figures are almost dead on with the computer. Running SoCal 91 perf tune Level 5.

Ok! My first impression......... Ready for it? HOLY SHIT!!!! (Sorry for the language) this is just absolutely insane!!! I don't know how Shawn does it! It makes LMS tunes feel like stock! I feel like I should run 11s in the 1/4!
And I haven't even pushed past 3k rpms. I'm too damn scared to. The gas has a hair trigger, boost is almost instantaneous. I really don't know how the hell he did it but he did. I don't know how I can go WOT. 1/4 throttle feels like WOT.

I'm totally speechless on what this tune feels like, and I have only tried the 5h.

You da man Shawn I'm gonna have a permanent grin every time I get in my truck.

Well, in kinda of a round about way, most everybody who has tried Shawn's tune , has the same story to tell.

Ive been asked to alter the 5h if possible. That is why there is a 5 and another below that. The 5h has a personality all its own. It would be like asking a Tiger to be a pet cat around the kids. It knows one thing only. Go for it.
