Welcome to the Club!!! ....and congrats on your new 5th wheel. Depending on how much larger of tire you went to, gears might be a place to start.

Yeah, no need to change gears. How about a tuner? Or are you looking for something more mechanical? How much are looking to spend?

Hmmm...I'm not that mechanical to be able to provide you the best answers...but we do have a lot of expert members here. I'd suggest posting your questions in the "Performance and Fuel" section of this forum and one of them should be able to provide you some solid suggestions pretty quickly. Also, include as much vehicle information as you can regarding mods, tire size, even mileage should help. The more they know about your vehicle, they better they can answer your questions.....

Good luck!!

Welcome to the club. I think the most bang for the buck is a Diablo Preditor tuner. You can use there tunes and make adjustments like the LongTermFuelTrims. Adjusting the LTFT's make a differance in mpg's, throttle response and power. Also you can get a custom tune online from one of there tuners. diablew.com has the best tunes for the Diablo. MarylandSpeed.com has the Diablo for $279.00 shipped.
