Best I have seen is 26 mpg on 91 octane averaging 75 mph.

On my last adventure to CA, on AJPTurbo's really spicy E30 tune I averaged roughly 20.4 mpg averaging 88 mph.

Tires were set to 44 psi, car was freshly washed, and cruise control was used for most of the freeway driving.

Update,  I do NOT like these plugs.   I have lost 4 tenths of a second of my 0-60 ... way way not happy.

Dropped from a repeatable 4.4 to a 4.8 ... super pissed since they cost a bunch

I failed to update the thread,  my bad.  A reset seems to have solved it... but i'm baffled and still kinda annoyed that changing plugs had such an effect ..

113 degree weather my trans got to roughly 205 degrees. Ambient air temps never got below 109 degrees from Palm Springs all the way to Phoenix. After getting through the hills, it leveled off at 201 degrees. I will take those numbers all day.

All in all, good upgrade and I am happy with the results.  I can't wait to see what the temps look like in cooler weather.

Funny to read the above, as I was just watching the morning news, concerned about the mid to upper 90's forecast here in CHI-raq, coupled with excessive humidity (dew points in the mid to upper 70's) and I noticed that Phoenix is set to have a high temp of 110.

Holy hell that's blistering!

Glad to hear your new and recently upgraded trans cooler is keeping those hot AF temps easily at bay.

Keep staying chill!

But it is a dry heat!  LOL. 110 is warm but not too bad.  116+ is just straight annoying.

Ford Derrick is the owner, I pinged him back in May of last year.. attached is the screen shot of our quick convo...

"No problem you have to trim 2 spots on each side of the lower grill you will see where its hitting"
"I also installed elevator bolts with epoxy on the back with brackets to reinforce it because I lost one on the highway"

Fun Fun!!

DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Effing Mike F of the win!!!!!!!!

I was having the same issue with fitment on mine.  Those two pieces he trimmed were completely screwing me up.  On the 2010 to 2012 the bottom lip is flush, on the 13+ it has those two spots.

Matt R. said I didn't need a revision for my catted PPE's on the AO or e30 tune.

Yup, not revision needed. The catted PPE's wont throw a code as they are efficient enough. Should be good to go!
