Power wire testing

Well, got new intake tube on, etc. put this power wire on, and noticed a drop in mileage, and a little drop in low end torque, so pulled the power wire off and got my mileage back, and a little better with this intake tube, Ive done as well as 23 mpg last night, so just wanted to share my findings and dont know if anyone else has that issue but It does increase the top end performance!!!

Power wire testing

I noticed a decrease in mileage too with mine. So I removed the resistor in my IAT extension cable.

Same here,.. the offset of a little more power, defeats the getting a little better mileage.

I need the low end since I do alot of towing here and run around in 90 to 100 degree heat all the time! LOL. I found the power wire to work best in 60's up to the 80's in temp and much into the 90's just fell off a bit more and not as much on power gains for some reason!
