At what point am I just kidding myself?
I posted this in another forum, but would like a little more exposure on the topic.
I lurk here and there absorbing the vast knowledge available by so many and like many others I cant leave well enough alone. I keep scouring the site trying to find more information in regards to my next mod
In the quest for improving mileage and gaining hp I started to wonder at what point am I just kidding kidding myself and no longer increasing efficiency. My upcoming mod list in order goes: airdog II (current pump cant keep up), spare ficm to have tuned by IDP (mild or moderate?), fluidamper, intake elbow, intercooler.
Anything I can do to increase power and efficiency I want to do, but when does efficiency begin take a toll?
I thought stepping up on injectors (155 max if I did them) is that point. I considered a turbo upgrade, but it's too far down the road to contemplate right now.
I ask the question though, because another post had someone stating 23 mpgs and he had injector upgrades. Although in no way do I ever expect to achieve those numbers, but I am willing to keep modding as long as efficiency is not negatively affected. If it remains the same that is also acceptable to me.
Although I do not yet have the toyhauler I want I plan my mods around expecting my truck to pull a 15,000 lb toyhauler (which is why I want a spare ficm to remove the tuned one when towing time comes around if egts are a concern).
Any ideas when Im just getting power hungry and throwing mileage out the window?
