I am a mileage whore I put a lot of miles on my truck mostly highway use. Some towing under 10k other than that I enjoy dragging it at the track. Best time is 14.6 1/4 mile. I keep hearing a lot about what to get next. I want to keep my fuel mileage which is around 20-22 on the highway but start to make some bigger modifications. I want to go for powermax, regulated return, maybe a FASS? Tuned FICM?. but keep my stock sticks till much later down the road. What should I do?

Re: Need Advice/Input

If you're going to keep stock sticks a fass probably isn't necessary if you have a healthy stock pump. Might be better to keep the reliability of the stock pump. Skip the powermax and look into barder or kc turbos. Both have great reputations and can supply you with a turbo that will work with stock sticks and still be towable. I can't comment on ficm tuning personally as I didn't really notice a mpg difference when I did mine but some people do report 1-2 mpg for the better.
