I will be topping off the tank tomorrow night (hopefully) and will have another update. This is largely in-town driving and short commutes (5-20 miles) on FM roads (60 MPH).

I will also post up a better pic of the plug and wire swap. Dressed things up nice, but sure makes the valve covers and exh. manifolds look like they need to be upgraded

Interesting...I notced no long term mpg gain with a stock and modified FIPK, or the current 14x3 system. Power yes, mileage, no.
I'm beginning to believe that ECM's on these trucks eventually relearn the increased air volume and simply add fuel to the mix to bring the af ratio back within the programmed parameters.
If anyone's mileage is still up after a few tanks of gas, Mopar to ya!

Thanks for the compliments. I have been very pleased so far. I will continue to keep tabs on every fill up, should be one tonight. I would hate to find this is short term and that the ECM brings me back to 11ish in a few more miles

Oh well, at least the extra little bit of power will still be there, lol.

We should have a few 94-01s in the show this weekend, a guy is coming over from Clovis in his 98 Dakota, and we might have 2 Warlocks! The big problem is most of the guys with Dodge trucks also have Dodge cars and you have to pick and choose events if you don't have a trailer.

I was swamped with prep-work for the show, but I did document the mpgs. I was at 12.48 this time, down a little bit, but that did include some fairly agressive driving, lol.

I'll be keeping tabs. Either way with the construction going on with virtually all my commute routes that is a nice pick-up imo.
