06 lbz Mods?

I've got an 06 four door silverado with the LBZ Alison 6-speed combo. Looking to get some more power and a little better mpg. I've been told so many different things now (tunner, exhaust, intake, egr delete, ect) I know all these things will help but which product is the best? which gives you the most for your buck? I use this truck at both my daily driver and for pulling my tandem trailers from jobsite to jobsite. I dont ever plan on racing it but who doesn't like more power!!! any input would be great.

Thanks, Joe

Whith the EFI live, you create your own map corect? I've done alot of that with sleds and wheelers but never a car. I would imagine the best way to do it is copy somones map, or take it to a dyno? sry for all the questions just new to this stuff.

Thanks Joe

There are many reputable tuners that will make a tune for you. No need to do it yourself.

Look into the edge cs and cts. Or efi, we offer tunes for efi as well. A tb exhaust will be a good investment as well. With just that you should be able to reach 18 to 20 mpg. Depending on how heavy of a foot you have.

Just wondering why most suggest to leave the intake alone?

Is it worthwhile to change the filter in the stock airbox?

How about the grid heater - leave it or remove it?

K&N and other oiled air filters screw with the mass air flow (MAF) sensor, stock air intake is good up to 500 HP. Id leave the grid heater, easier on the DMAX in cold weather.

Like everyone else says EFI and exhaust to start with. I am running Idaho rob tunes and got 18mpg with winter fuel.
