I know there are alot of things to do for more power, and usually getting more power results in lowering your fuel efficiency.<br><br>My questions is what can you do to get better mileage? Will doing all these do it yourself power adders improve or hurt mileage?

On my 92 I have made the following changes-<br>185 Bosch injectors, 16cm turbo housing, increased rpm to 2900, timing is set at 1.4.<br>Yes, my truck has considerably more power went from 157 hp to 220, but my mileage has not decreased and in fact has slightly improved if I control the right foot. ;D That is the biggest problem, when we have the extra power then most of us have a tendency to use it.<br>Other things that improve fuel economy are, clean air filter, clean fuel filter, not using cruise control, not driving to fast, properly inflated tires and using a good quality fuel.<br>---<br>Al
