Default New Dude from MS

hay guys, new from MS... haven't acually bought a ranger yet but hopefully will own one today... its a 2001 2.3L auto regular cab torch red... getting it just for gas mileage as i drive over a 1000 miles a week and my 97 F-150 i have had since i was 15 (now 27) is killing me on gas... will do some mods to it... lowering and wheels first off... i have a SCT XCal 2 tuner laying around so i'll prolly have it tuned... where are ya'll getting tunes from? i'm sure some are wondering about the name... so here is my 2005 Mustang GT, street/drag setup... few bolt-ons and some nitrous... good to be here...

i feel assured it will get 24/25 hwy mpg... much better than the 15/16 mpg of a non-pi 4.6L and 4R70W in a 5500lb truck... but the mustang is fixing to get a heart transplant of a 5.0L coyote and i have been considering putting the 4.6L 3V from the GT in the F-150... thought it would be kinda interesting... but wiring would be a PITB....
