Performance tuners

Hi guys I'm new here. Anybody using a cold air intake on their new 6.2? If so what kind of mileage increases if any. Does anyone make a performance programer yet? If so, any experiences? I have a 2011 F-250crewcab 4x4 with 16000 mile only complaint is a newly developing tick in, I believe the top end. Averaging 12.5 MPG city. Thanks guys and if I've asked any t questions that have previously been answered, I apologize. Thanks

First off, Welcome to FTE!

Secondly, here are some threads to look at:

As far as tunes go, fordmdb (the original poster in those threads) is Mike from 5 Star Tuning. He's been writing tunes for the 6.2 and the 5.0 and owns each of them in an F-150 and an F-350. He's the man when it comes to tuning on these things.

I have an Airaid intake on mine... My write-up is here:

As for MPG increase... it definitely increased... I'm thinking it went up around 1.2 to 1.4 MPG... which is about a 10% increase...

I have the same issue... there's a TSB on it?

As far as tuners, what the guys said up above. I've been looking into one, but decided not to. I have the intake as well and gotten an mpg increase..
