Here's the kit

http://www.amazon.com/2004-2009-CRF2.../dp/B004E27O3G

Just gotta smog her and register her and that's it. Def get some supermoto wheels n tires too!

I'm not really pursuing this like crazy, but I wouldn't mind saving money on gas

I'd love a cam in there, I just don't ride much any more. One day! lol

Re: What does everyone do to save gas?

Im looking at leasing a 2011 Hyundai Sonota 2.0T, my ladys parents just got one and its fantastic car, they really came a long way, they paid a mindblowing low price for a fully loaded, leather, sun roof and navi packing car. I love the way it drives. So its on my list for a sister to the jeep

What MPG do you get after adding the Predator?

Re: What does everyone do to save gas?

It depends. It makes your Jeep run much more efficient, but at times I like to step on it cuz it's fast! lol It was an over all improvement in MGPS. With all my other mods included I'm averaging 15 city 20 hwy. I def recommend the predator!

Re: What does everyone do to save gas?

Hey Everyone!
Lots of acronyms being tossed around, like WOT, CAI, etc. Is there a spot on this site that defines them? The info here is great, but if we newbies to the site don't know the terms, the info is useless to us!

Many thanks!
