The 6.0 has a radically different engine and drivetrain compared to the 7.3s. So the tips and tricks are quite a bit different. There is a lot that can be done by simply deleting the EGR system and adding a good quality tuner. Anything to help air in and exhaust (all the things that typically make more power) can also can help to improve economy when combined with conservative driving habits. The best advise I can offer is to research which mods may give you the best bang for the buck and then go fourth and experiment. Economy was not my primary focus when this project started. So, luck had a lot to do with the end result.
