1) Yesterday I noticed a small pool of water under my truck at the rear of the right fender. First thing that popped in my head was "this is not good". After looking around I noticed that there is a hose dripping water under the fuel filter, so I'm guessing this is the overflow hose????? I hope so.

2) I'm getting ready to get a new mouthpiece made by AFE. I would just buy the GM piece, but i don't want to Fu** anything up on the modifications. My question is, how better fuel mileage will I get. I currently get about 14.5, so anything will be better than that.

3) Will turbo back exhaust help out with fuel mileage also??? I'm not really into getting a programmer, because the truck has so many miles on it. I want to leave well enough alone and not much more HP.

4) What is a DPF delete?

5) What is a realistic fuel mileage after an exhaust and MP mod with an aftermarket air filter (not CIA)?


Also any additional advice will be appreciated!!!!:drink

1. the water is just A/C it is normal
2. i did not reallly see any mpg increases but it does lower egt and spool quicker
3. an exhaust will give you a little better mpgs

How do you like your EFI live? I'm not much on getting a programmer, but I see people on the forum seem to like EFI live.

It's kinda complicated...but well worth the money!!!! Just start messing alittle at a time with it and it's not bad. If you arent gonna build any tunes you could also call Rob and buy a pretuned ecm with dsp2 or dsp5 switch. But like i did..if i were you spend the litle extra and get the whole thing.then you can read/clear codes too!! Efi live is has endless possiblities and Rob would build you some great tunes from dd to towing to all out power!!:drink

I would highly recommend that you look at Signature Custom Tuning for your economy needs.
Is this ENER-vative tuning thing? A work sheet came up when I googled it.
Is this you guys?
