Well so far I'm pleased with the injectors. I've seen to have a very slight miss that is very very mild and rare to occur. But so far I'm enjoying the +2 MPG increase to the fuel mileage. I'm now able to touch 21 MPG with winterized fuel in Idaho... Never done that before... But I got to admit you must be careful with the new found power that comes with the injectors. On wet or icy pavement things can horribly wrong quick. :whistle:

Yep........I found that out in a big hurry after the installation of the Formula 1 Mach 1.6 injectors.

Just a quick note.....Now that you modified the fuel delivery your electronic milage measuring devices are not going to be correct. They are programmed for stock fueling/throttle position rates and now that is altered with different injectors so I would definately be checking it manually from now on to see how much of a diff it will make from the digital readings to the actual calculation.

That's simple just a calibation away... I need to get the funds together... But the SG II can be calibrated for this were the stock overhead if FIXED...

I check by miles driven and fill up gallons.

:iagree:but oversized/undersized tires make your odometer off if you haven't fixed that

I trust my SG II and/or Garmin V more that my odometer even though its only off by 0.5 MPH.

I have had a set of RV275 injectors for a number of years now in my 2002. I had them custom built, balanced and pop tested. No miss issues at all. The extra power is a nice kick in the pants. H.O. 2nd gen trucks really wake up with bigger injectors and are especially entertaining when you add a performance box.

SGII works fairly well normally gives very close numbers to hand calculated as long as you calibrate it and make sure your spped is dead accurate... These 2 numbers are critcal to getting the SG II to display close to true numbers.

Mile Per Gallon Calucation

Speed (Miles Per Hour) / Fuel Usage (Gallons Per Hour) = Miles Per Gallon

Gallons Per Hour Calculation

Speed (Miles Per Hour) / Miles Per Gallon = Fuel Usage (Gallons Per Hour)

Speed Calculation

Fuel Usage (Gallons Per Hour) x Miles Per Gallon = Speed (Miles Per Hour)

Now we will use the examples above to calculate MPG form fuel flow and speed.

65 MPH / 4.39 GPH = 14.80 MPG

As for my miss... I'm sure it has a lot to do that I got them donated from another member and they already had 400K miles on them... But the funny part is I ran a double dose of 2 cycle oil and the miss is nearly gone! Shocker 2 cycle oil cleaned then up rather well... :thumbup2:
