    More power = more fuel!

    Those 42's allow you to flow more fuel which it needs...

    You could always ease up on the throttle...

    Your going to use more fuel all the way through the rev range, as your ecu is mapped for 38# and your using 42#. you could install a rrfpr and wind back the base pressure a little bit, but it won't help that much.
    Remember, "you have to pay, to play"

    1/2 tank in 40 minutes stock is good, even at 6K. Consider yourself lucky. Wanna save gas? Go on a diet

    what kind of air intake do you have?

    A 4" rear air intake would lean it out some, and give it more power.

    if your still running the junk stock ic in the mani then put your 38s back in. if your running aftermarket ic then you still run the 38s but with a rrfpr. your just wasting fuel now with the 42s

    If your running a RRFPR keep it under 5k rpms, once you start boosting, fuel goes bye bye.

    Why is everyone saying 42s with the X-Charger and intake then? I keep hearing different. Has anyone leaned out and blew pistons while running the X charger and 38s? If not then I'm selling my Lucas injectors and running the stockers.
