Ok. So I updated my tuner (it was far behind) and took about a 400 mile trip. I hand calculated my fuel usage, I got 15.0. This is on a (Texas) highway through some hill country with towns and the occasional passing some slow drivers. I don't imagine interstate would be a whole lot better. Maybe slightly.
Before the trip I cleaned the turbo with a can of (non-flammable) brake clean. I figured that would help.
I do think that the 5" was just a coincidence as well.

Also one more issue I have that the update did not fix... I have a substantial lag in the throttle response when rolling and after I let my foot off (0% throttle) and back on again. Not racing around or anything. Just normal driving.
Thanks guys!
