Anyone running power boxes on acerts and how are they performing?

Looking to increase performance and fuel mileage on an 06 C-15 acert. Its set at 485 horse right now and been told to turn it up to at least 525 to increase fuel mileage or look at installing a power box. I have Pittsburgh power mufflers and fleet air filters on order to install. What are the benefits of installing a power box over just turning up the engine?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I personally don't have one but know 2 good friends who do. One pulls livestock, one pulls a flatbed. They both claim the power box is the best thing you can buy for the ACERT. The ACERT is actually a pretty good engine once it's potential is unleashed. I don't think you'd be disappointed at all.

If you have a DPF you are not able to put on a power box, per Pitts Power. I tried to get one on my 08 acert c-15. It was set at 475, had it turned up to 1859lbs & 550hp, & I picked up about .4 mpg avg, it does hurt you if you dont drive it smart, you cant mash down all the time or the mpgs will go down.

the nice thing and I think the best thing about the box is that i can unplug it! and replug the ecm in by itself. so when shops are working on the engine they can't say the problem is PP box. And if my engine runs better on just the ecm after unpluging the box I get to call Bruce and ask. Whats up Nicely!
