ONLY ONE WAY TO KNOW. "Check it". Don't forget to drive it as you normally do/will.
I would think in the area of 7.5 to 12 in the real world. Less when towing your trailer.

I own this truck, IMO I would think that those mods would help mpgs I have calculated 16.2 in the past but mpgs have dropped and I'm looking for what I should be getting on a regular basis with these mods. Thanks!

How long have you owned the truck? Mpg will go down this time of year because of fuel additives.
What your calculating is an impressive number in my oppinion

That's mpg is with a tank of premium driving conservatively. If I drive aggressively I can easily put it at 8 mpg. The dyno said it has 390hp and 430 lbs of torque

Not exaggerating. It's bored over, and maybe a few more small things I bought it all done up. Lol runs amazing recently bought it a month ago for 3k. I remember him saying more stuff I know engines just not a racing guy. Not sure how far it's bored over.
