the superlift speedo corrector connects to your transmission speed sensor output with two wires and than I set it with a gps and now it shifts beautifully and gas mileage back. be aware with the intake that I have a lot of other things with it that all help and using my scan gage to teach me to drive better too. but yes the intake was a huge improvement and works well . for the speedo corrector just use google and search for superlift speedo corrector and will take you there believe it was only 59 or so dollars.

have had some new issues lately with the running but am slowly tracking it down go from one week running great next week sucks. Well what I have found out is the intake needs re-torqueing every now and then. and finally just put a new intake gasket on and good again but also did some other adjustments to TPS voltage and min rpm for IAC counts and now is hesitating from a stop and also misses and bucks every now and then. so will be putting my new cat on and full tune up have not replaced cap/rotor since I put the new engine in last year. did a trip to Santa Barbara few weeks ago and calculated gas mileage was 13.8 for the whole trip. Lastly just smogged with the Hughes intake on and no issues.

What made you choose the Hughes over the M1?

first and foremost gas mileage claims(all true averaging 13MPG here in California) then I wanted something in a dual plane format not a single plane as with the M1. when I was young I had driven an old dodge diplomat with and old skool 360 with a dual plane and it was a ripen engine. and with the Hughes I get dual plane , injector angle change , more flow, and just seemed to have a whole lot of people designing and putting into production. so long story short I love my intake and at the drag strip she holds her own now and dropped my times by almost 4 tenths on the eighth mile on my lifted truck pushing 35's.

Im going to do this intake also
Im hoping to get good results with my brute force intake
4.56 gears
sct tuner by hemiver
2200 stall converter and my high flow cat

Ive heard alot of good things about it and one guy said that his truck has "never felt like this since the day he bought it new"

for 599.99 its expensive, but every review i read people just love it!

I cant wait...should wake up my truck some

so finally I got my rough idle fixed and feel so stupid. granted my vacuum leak didn't help maters much but was looking at old "SpeedTweaks papers and saw something about MSD and rough idle and it stated that I needed a tach adapter MSD 8910 to fix the injector/spark trigger signal and sure enough installed it and vioala smoothe as silk again and Power on demand baby bring on those mustangs!!!!

What does a dual plane do different on a FI engine?

On my local Dyno jet my numbers for torque and HP have changed because from contrary to popular belief it makes a diff in and I understand ur angle here is the cylinders still fire in their specified firing order so you have pulses and port velocity changes with a dual plane as the volume is different and also each port velocity changes just like on a carbureted engine. wow hope that made sense. But also years ago I had a friends M1 that just seemed to fall on its face on my truck and now that I have the Hughes all I can say is huge diff. But mostly the different injector angle is another bonus as it shoots straight into the port unlike the stock intake and the M1.
