Beside the change in hp and torque - IF anyone has one, what has it done for your MPG??

I'm running a 2011 Equator RMZ-4 Crew Cab in River Red (Nissan calls it Code Red)

Currently stock with the exception of ballistic nylon seat covers (F&R), Curt class 3 hitch and an Undercover tonneau cover.

Have done some poking around via Google...and found some claims of increased MPGs IFF one keeps their foot out of it. The rationale was that with the slightly increased available lower/mid range torque - that less throttle is needed to maintain speed. IIRC, it was an Xterra owner that claimed +1 mpg. YMMV -heh-

More often than not: HP is overrated...and torque is underrated. Torque is what gets/pulls/propels us around town...and any enhancement there seems worthy in my book. Maybe not ~$200 worthy, but I'll be ordering mine Sunday night or Monday!

As stated by shift_RUSH, if you drive normal to going easy on it, you can see 1-2+mpg or better. I don't make these claims because I see them, as I have a lead foot. I love the feel of the torque that pulls in the low/midrange so my mpg does not do better. But I did not necessarily buy it for mpg when I got one way back in 06/07, but for the Torque and HP it brings when towing, running bigger tires, heavier weights on the truck, like equipment, winches, bumpers etc. I was living in CO and towed a 2place snowmobile trailer loaded up and it helped a lot especially in the mountains where you lose power due to elevation. I have quite a few people who have seen mpg improvements on both Nissan and Toyota. These statements were all from their own observances and results. Even a guy towing a camper for a 500mile round trip said he saw better mpg.

Ready to order! What's the ETA?

2016 Pro-4x, XTP intake spacer, AFE cai, Bilstein 5100s w, 1-1/2" blocks, PRG UCAs & 2" AAL, MB TKO w/285/70/17 Falken Wildpeaks, G2 Bakflip, color matched roof rack & grill, custom HIDprojectors, so far it's only a couple of months old

Coming if they ever have a set that'll work: tow mirrors, headers if UpRev gets their act together??
RIP 06 Armonster

Not sure what you are referring to? If you mean link on the website for purchasing it is the only one that says Group Buy. The others say something different.

Not yet. I updated the OP. Just sort of started. We are at 7 so far.

It's dependent on buyers as well as the shop. I am the little guy and they have other big jobs, so it's going to be a bit until I get my order. But since we are only part way there it should all come together around the same time. Of course I will ship in the order I receive payment.

BTW there's a note area in the checkout process. If you put your forum name etc I can add to the buying list. Otherwise it just gets added as forum user, or Facebook user. See OP.
