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 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.

97 PS. 4x4 standard cab long bed Custom intake, three in down pipe to custom 5in Stove Pipe stacks (outside the bed), TS performance 6pos. chip TCI torque converter oversized tranny cooler, banks trans-command. Soon to be intercooled by super duty intercooler. Full bumper replacement grill guard, custom rear bumper (that i built from 6in C-channel, 5/8 plate, 3in pipe and 1/4in plate). custom headache rack.

Best..a TS 6pos chip as any of the great tuners can burn tunes to it unlike a DP. We have them in stock with TW custom tunes. You must have guages..intake and exhaust is also needed for the best results for MPG gains. PM if I can help.

The best tuner is what you run! there really is no BEST tuner out there. They all do things differently and have their share of nutswingers. Jody does great work, along with the many others. i am running Tyrant Diesel Tunes right now and relaly like them. i think i will stick with his tunes.

X2 thats why I always say get a TS chip so you can try others..unlike locking yourself into a chip that only one tuner will provide tunes for.
