-Programmer/tuner (which now I'm hearing is BS about the gains in MPG)
-gears(in a way for bottom end, torque)
-throttle body spacer(also questionable)


FEEL FREE TO ADD YOUR IDEA, I WANT TO HEAR WHAT PEOPLE SAY AND HAVE EXPERIENCED.


Electric fan and programmer are the only mods listed that will potentially increase fuel economy and performance at the same time. Besides what is listed, headers might provide a very small increase in mpg along with a performance gain.

taller gears might help assuming you're running a stock tire size.
