Well, I was thinking the other day about some things...
I've got a nearly bone stock 00 F250 6spd. I get around 22mpg in the city because of the way that I drive. I generally shift near 1500rpm, but I wouldn't say that my starts are necessarily 'turtle' starts. Just not jackrabbit starts.
As soon as my truck comes out of the shop I'm going to get a boost/egt gauge so I can monitor my vitals and figure out what's getting me the best mpg.
I've also thought about building a runner-type intake (something like this) to help even out airflow and help with harmonics and efficiency in a non- / low-boost rpm range:
I wonder if it'd help build power at a higher rpm (more boost) also, but I doubt it'd detract any under pressure at least.
What do ya'll think?
I know Dave's all about keeping a little bit of boost to clean up the combustion process, but maybe just cleaning up the air entering the cylinder would accomplish the same process
