175cc Mileage

Posted this in MPG section and didn't get any hits. Trying to figure out what the going rate is for MPGs with 175cc injectors. So what are you guys getting?

Re: 175cc Mileage

I put some in mine about 3 weeks ago. The cpu went from about 11.2 to 17.8 in the city going between street and race tune and thats drivin it hard. I put in 175 injectors, EGR delete, and SCT from RCD. The truck already had a CAI and 4 in turbo back exh. I drove the truck less then two weeks and burned up the trans so didn't get good mileage calculations just kept checkin my overhead.

Re: 175cc Mileage

After I installed my 175's my dash went from 15 to 22 mpg, hand calculated to about 11 mpg. This was just normal driving. I also smoked my transmission shortly after the install.

Re: 175cc Mileage

Injectors in my 6.0 were the best thing I ever did. It ran exponentially better. Picked up 4.5 mpg or so and had much better throttle response. I ran elites 185s

Re: 175cc Mileage

If that's hand calculated that's pretty good. I don't know what I want to go with with when I get injectors, 155s or 175s. I don't know if I want power or mileage, or a little of both.

Re: 175cc Mileage

Either one should be fine. I wouldnt go bigger then 190cc for a daily driver. If you are going to keep the stock turbo then stay with 155cc

Re: 175cc Mileage

I here people are getting pretty decent mileage out of the 155s, so that might not be a bad thing.
