thanks for the info everyone! one thing though.... i have heard some bad stories of people switching to synthetic. is it just me or am i taking a risk of switching to synthetic when i have over 100,000 miles. I also heard that synthetic help gets rid of the infamous "hemi tick". as for adding other stuff on.... im going to put the predator chip and hopefully get that BFI intake that the Z vendor is advertising!

i would hold off your order of the BFI bro until he gets through the enormous wait list that are for them. I have waited 3 months and haven't recieved it yet. Go on over to the main threads about the BFI and you can see what your getting yourself into if you go this route. He supposedly has shipped a few of them now. So hopefully this whole drama is coming to a close but until somebody confirms a delivery, I wouldnt come anywhere close to ordering. Just letting you know bro.

Default K.I.S.S Keep it simple silly

Hello, if you were getting better gas mileage before your oil change and it suddenly got worse after look the simple things first. They most likely knocked something off like a vacuum line or something of the sort.

Good luck, Andrew

actually, don't order a BFI at all. Save yourself and your sanity. 3 months of nothing but lies just about killed me, which is why I have cancelled and am waiting on my money back.

because it's predecessor has been tested to be the 2nd best performing cai on the market for qc's. vararam beats it but i hate the vararam setup..

he told me that it would take 30 days to get my money back, and then he told me that my order would ship next wek...hmm......so i guess i'm waiting..i wouldnt even think about it until he get's this first part of the deal over with..which is actually releasing them..which has been literally a year in the making..he's a lying little worm..but idk what else to do bc a effin month on waiting to get my money back would absolutely drive me even more insane..head on over to the main thread to check up on news/lies/blasphemy/etc from lance/shipping dates. all i can do now is cross my damn fingers, and whenever i do get it, pay a little visit to the bbb..
