Do you guys think it will get a 2mpgs gain?.
What motor does it have..3 or 4 Liter? Auto or manual transmission? Check the air filter..though unlikely a really dirty one can cause worse gas mileage. Cheaper than a tuner are the plug-in modules that show real-time mileage (amongst other things) which can aid you to maximize your mileage. That alone could give you the 2mpg gain.
