Injectors and MPG

Ok guys, so heres the question... assuming similar driving habits... will your MPGs go down after going with bigger sticks? Or does the tuning level things out as long as you are not all over it?

I know we end up on single shot injectors and didnt know how much that plays into their efficiency....

haha.. yeah kind of what I figured on the driving habits... but mpgs will go up huh? That I did NOT expect.

I noticed just now in another thread that the Hybrids will require less oil? In a way stretching your stock HPOP HP limits? Why/How is this?

because they have a 5:1 injection ratio as apposed to the 7:1 of an a code. and they are single shot. everyone thinks that hybrids use less oil but it should be properly worded as "use less oil per volume" than a codes

Ok good point.. So at the end of the day... are you better off on hybrids with a stock HPOP? or Non-Hybrids on an upgraded pump?

depends on what you want, pretty much everything over 200cc these days are hybrids. i have 160/100 a codes with a stealth hpop and i make decent power but a 200/100 hybrid with stock hpop could prolly make the same power.

Your better off if your just wanting to stay under 400HP and not spend $$$ for support mods getting stage 1's..won't need a HPOP, BTS, big turbo, studs etc that you will need going big..plus the best MPG's will be from stage 1's.

If I can help you mod correctly the first time please PM.
