Performance chip for Ford V10 Triton

Can anyone recommend an aftermarket performance chip to improve gas mileage and power out of the V10?

5 star tuning and Brazel's get a lot of recommendations.

It is simple physics, you want more power, you have to burn more fuel. You want get both, SORRY.

I think you will find the gains are minimal on a normally aspirated engine like the V-10. Any gains you do get will tend to be small and mostly at the high end of the rpm band. Many tuners change the throttle to be more aggresive to make it seem like it is more powerful. I wouldn't waste my money.

I disagree . lean air fuel ratio is more power. to lean is bad to rich is bad . a lean air fuel ratio will give you economy . and lean will give you power .
now a diesel motor on the other hand more fuel means more power but not a gas motor.


I have a wait4meperformance tune and i get 2 mpg better and 20hp

Lean is never more power. You posted: "I have a wait4meperformance tune and i get 2 mpg better and 20hp "

Do you have any dyno proven runs to back this up???

These super chips are a waste of money. I had one and it made so little difference..Also, don't let Ford see it if you go in for warranty with engine problems.

Only way to improve mileage to any extent is take shorter trips or don't drive it at all.
