The newer ones have been fine, good enough for us to order two more just recently. They average around 6 mpg compared to around 8 for the 6. . I had a 99 with a v-10, 3. Plenty of utility boxes for all your tools. Why is it than that my stock V10 runs away from my stock 7. Carl As mentioned the addition of gadgets that claim increases in mpg usually don't deliver.

Looks like a very good system but still only advertises up to 7% mpg increase. Would like to increase by at least 2 - 4 mpg if at all possible. Unit runs and operates great. The engine itself is a good design with plenty of horsepower and torque, however you have to take into account tire size and gear ratio playing a huge role in the truck being able to put that power to the ground. I have been told the 3 valve version was better on fuel plus it has the 5 speed automatic. I also tow a 2400 pound Fiat 500C behind it.
Either way can only get 6. V10's are great motors, they'll run for a long long time if taken care of.

The guys on here are posting the fuel economy as being the same but that is not our experience. The mileage wasn't great, but what do you expect? I Installed a Vacum Gauge to help driving habits, Have driven seperate trips both in overdrive and also out of overdrive. My model year used a 3 valve per cylinder design, not sure if your model year used that or the older 2 valve per cylinder design.

I can't believe that an intake and exhaust package wouldn't help mpg more than they advertise. This truck will do multiple jobs. Full payment to be Cashier's check, cash in person, wire transfer, Credit card-Visa- Mastercard. So, do you own one, or are you just trolling? Since my engine was a mechanical 5. It may slightly improve the fuel economy but not by much. Truck is equipped with a V10 gas engine, and a automatic transmission.
They advertise that truckers use them, well I have never seen them yet! It could tow my loaded 6K pound race car trailer all day long and hardly know it was there. You would think that I would see them, all the time. Depending on the year of the chassis there are some things you can do to help like evolvingpowercat recommended. The only gripe I had with the V10 was the exhaust manifold studs like every other Ford gas motor. I'll look into the tuner devices. Gear splitters, also have dropped any mention of % increase in mpg.
I had an '01 F250 with one and it had plenty of power. Even Banks aren't advertising the old % anymore! I'll try all the suggestions received so far.

Have been reviewing the Banks Power Pack System. I would love to see statistics for Air Tabs, I hear mixed reports on them. The increase in power was large however the mpg was not as good as before. My take on Air Tabs. We had problems with throttle bodies on all four 05s that we have and manifolds.
Truck miles read 270,292 and runs great, very strong unit. You can google air tabs and look at their web site. It would get the same gas mileage loaded or unloaded, so if you tow or plow a lot it does help you out in the end. Still not happy I did some research. Pintol hitch to pull a trailer. Either way can only get 6.
