It must be close to All Saint's Day when the dead rise! This post did the same!

Fix-until-Broke hits your probe right on the nail! I've been running the famed mpg sprint 520's for a while now...... I believe I experienced a small increase, yet the " right foot mod " so called on this forum guided by scanguage 11 does more than anything if its mpg you're after, not nozzels! Nozzels give a tremendous "umpf" increase and you actually have to train yourself to stay out of it, (with the exception of getting through the gears up to 5th). A good tune enhances a nozzel upgrade , yet the same applies here as well.
A stock car will get you close to the best mpg., Nozzels + Tune = a blast to drive! Yet somehow with my mods I still see improved mpg from stock, that simply means guide that right foot and you get the best of both worlds
my 2 cents
DG racepipe, muffler/catectomy, 2.5 PP downpipe from Kerma, 3"exh., Sprint 520's, Rocketchip stage 2, Scanguage II w/ boost xguage,
2004 Passat unchained 180k on clock Rocketchip stage 2
