EDGE EZ Vs Mileage Max

Ive got a little bit of money and I want to do some Upgrades to my truck. I am looking for things to get MPG more than anything else.

Im looking at chips, either this Mileage Max or the Edge EZ

The other things that I am going to get are
-Muffler Delete
-Tunneau Cover

From your guy's experience, what kinda +MPG can you get with these I figure if its only a few 10th's a gallon i would rather go with the EZ module so if I want to, I can haul at the drag drip.

-85" Mustang GT CFI

the edge ez gave me 2 mpg improvement over stock and a little kick in the seat on power improvement. its a basic box, but if your looking for a good mpg increase, this may be for you. ive been happy with it. if you DONT have the cash to invest in gages, and new clutch / tranny, then this would be a good fit as well.

I'm getting the Mileage Max, 5" TBE, and CAI installed tomorrow. Right now I'm stock. I'll let you know how it goes.

If you want power get something that does timing and duration, like the Juice. The EZ should only be used for stacking.

If you want mileage, then get the mileage max.

I actually lost some fuel economy with the EZ on my '03. Not much but it was a .5-1mpg drop. And that was on the 50hp setting.
Personally, I wasn't that impressed with the EZ. Ran it for a year and ditched it for the SMARTY.

So far I installed the Mileage Max chip, I haven't noticed any difference in MPG yet, though I can sure as hell fell it when i step on the gas. I have a Tounno Cover coming as well as a muffler delete tube that my neighbor is gonna weld up for 20 dollars. I'm trying to find a set of lowering springs for the truck, preferably 3" front, 6" back, so it will be leveled out and since its lowering the center of gravity and all that I should get some better handling/MPG. Does anyone know how much the stock batteries for these trucks weigh I still have both of my factory batteries in there and I am wondering if it is worth the money to invest into some lighter ones.
