Re: Holy MPGs Batman!!!

this was over 350 miles IIRC, 70-80 the whole way





I can't get that now with the toona, bwoody, borla and lead-foot HAHA...and who really cares what a 3.7 gets in gas mileage, right?

With these mods, do you have to re-prog the chip or does the computer make the necessary adjustments? Thanks

Re: Holy MPGs Batman!!!

Well, you have to take the battery cables off which resets the computer also. So it will be reset during the install of the mods.

From Florida to Michigan?? I'm surprised! The way these vehicles consume gas I don't know how you can afford it.

Re: Holy MPGs Batman!!!

Highly recommend the Fastman port TB. Not really for mpg (although it may help a tidge combined with the CAI) because it really increase in throttle response and an AMAZING sound.

Re: Holy MPGs Batman!!!

I'm kinda lost here what are these mods you keep talking about? I would like to add them to my Jeep.Also how do you make that Evic thing come out, So I can view the Mpg's. What I understood it's the through the key dance, but All I get is the Dtc report.
