Baubbles and bolt-ons

Postby Fofiddy » Wed Oct 11, 2006 7:24 pm

Has anyone installed any FPIK's, Intakes, or throttle body spacers? If so what are you opinions?
Anyone found a way to get better than 15-17mpg on a combined cycle?

Intakes aren't the answer for fuel economy. They tend to just give more of a sucking sound with very little if any horsepower gain. I know K&N make an intake, which was introduced recently. I haven't seen any spacers or intake manifolds. The Pathy isn't getting much attention from the after market, which sucks. It has the horsepower and ability to be a great offroad vehicle. Offroad.com has a project titan, but I haven't seen anything for the Pathy.

Increased tire pressure, grill blocking, removing the roof rack, removing excess weight and a light foot at lower speeds will all help. :D

For advanced at some additional cost look to H2O injection, warm air intake, various aerodynamic mods, lightening the vehicle, narrower tires and timing retardation.
