Will keep that in mind. Got to put some miles on the new motor before I do anything like though.

Although you can use way more fuel if you are putting your foot into it (and you get far more power while you do that)... you can actually save around 2-3 mpg by running in low rpm with 1-3psi boost. I've logged ~21-21.5 mpg on a few trips using 80kms/hr roads (with the manual Rangersome on somewhat hilly terrain). Also, our 06 7-seat Explorer 7passenger 4x4 has AVERAGED 19.3 mpg on daily driving! And that's using 91 octane and the new high-boost pulley (smaller than the 8psi pulley).
thats great news! cuz i'm on 33x10.5 tires and my highway dropped to 16.6hwy/15twn before i put the screw on. if i can get it back up to 19ish on the highway i'll be happy. i've only got about 25 miles put on it so far and just leaving a stop light you definitely feel it. that torque curve is unbelievable. haha
