i can assure you, you will not get high 20s, unless your rolling down hill with a tail wind. Deleting things will help, yes, but not to that magnitude.

IF you are going to do this i would get a H&S QUICK before they are all sold. Which is basically almost happened

i dont understand what you mean? if your asking what you need for all the deletes, then you will need the following

1.H&S tuner. either min-max or the XRT-PRO they are the same thing but the min has build in gauges

downpipe, either DRP or diamond eye

a full exhaust brand of your choice, and 4'' or 5'' its up to you

than an AirDog pump but you only need that if you wanna run the hot tune WOT

and you will need the unlock code for the dpf delete and thats another 100$

you have to run all the parts together like you cant really put anything 1 thing on without all the other parts

Every truck, even with the same make and model, can have difference in the fuel economy. I know it sounds strange, but I have found this to be true personally.

Realistically you might see a 3mpg gain. I'd expect a good mpg tune, easy driving you would be in the early 20s, maybe 25 tops. After that you need to add power adders like water/meth, or propane/CNG to see even further gains. These trucks are about 700lbs heavier than previous.

Im going on the assumption that the lmm/lml have lower fuel mileage then the lb7/LLY/LBZ. What kind of mileage might one expect from the LLY/LBZ on the highway, with no load?

My gas pot gets 9mpg city, 13.5mpg hwy. 75mph average highway speed.

Stock on 285s I was at 16mpg at 65 going the 75 miles to work. After the mods I was around 19. With robs +100 DD tune, I can feather 23 to 24 out of her, hand calcutated. The feather part is hard to do because it's way to much fun to drive.
