Your brother is a tard. You want a SCT Tuner by either Fred or Doug, You will get 2-4MPG better, more HP, and you can change a few things like gear ratios, tire size, etc.

well his point was the power, with the diesel you really just have to add more fuel. and i know like with his he can get a 80 horse turn. he just told me i couldnt get that with like mine and it would work as good.

you get different programs like 3 different ones..

torque, preformance, hp i think are you choices

i got one for my bigger tires and gears..BIG difference i love it..probably one of the best mods i did on the truck.

if you ever plan on lifting it..it will correct your speedometer and give that extra boost and little better mpg
