I have a 97 and used to run an edge evolution. Now i have a custom chip.( I like it much better!!!) My dad has a 2000 and a 2001 both have the evolution and run great. on the econ. setting he got 2mpg better on the 2000 (F-350 4X4 crew cab dully auto 4:10 rear end) and 4mpg on the 01 (F-250 ext.cab 4x4 auto 3:73 rear end.) I really didnt notice much diff on my 97, but i have a lead foot.
As for power dad runs both his on the 80hrs setting, he pulls 10,000# + trailers alot, and has no problem holding 75 on the highway, flat ground or hills. Once in a while hell juice the 01 to the 100hrs setting just for fun. It will leave a 300ft black marks with out much problem, and he usually has to let out when the speedo hits 85 and hes still smokin the tires.
Weve never run the diablo, but a good friend of ours did in his 2001 350 cc dully and according to the mechanic, (another good friend and Diesel expert, not a Ford dealer) the programmer over fueled the truck so bad that it cooked cylinder 6 and 7. But thats just 1 example.
