    gas consumption after mods

    over the weekend i finished installing the mods listed in my sig. took it to the lake to test it and the first thing i noticed was the gas mileage went to sh*t. i read that it might be from the motor not getting enuff fresh air. make sense? what could i do for more air up front? one thing for sure it sounded awesome

    I guess that's cause you are running harder with the mods. More air, more speed, more gas. What really helped my gas mileage with my S3 wheel was buying the RRFPR and going back to the stock 38 injectors. I really saw a drop in gas useage then.

    Looking at your mods, i dont see where you should be using more gas compared to stock. You did not change fuel management or increase power much so i would have to agree with Jerry on running harder.
    My Rude with rrfpr on the rxp gets better gas milage then it did with 42s and S3. Also my rude setup gets about the same or better milage then the X ski.
