Two weeks back from SEMA and although last week I mentioned the technological increase we noted at the show, there was also quite a few new manufacturers present and exhibiting. This is somewhat surprising as finding a manufacturer to build you intercoolers, turbos, etc.. isn’t exactly hard and at the same time SEMA isn’t exactly inexpensive to showcase your capabilities. So I was a bit surprised in retrospect with what we saw. That being said it’s a great time to talk to people who do one thing and do it really well and pick their brain for information!
At first blush it might sound like an oxymoron but in fact economy and performance aren't such strange bedfellows. After all performance is really all about efficiency in all it's iterations. The nature of good tuning should support an increase in daily MPG's, primarily at light throttle cruise, by virtue of more precise calibrations for the particular driving environment, fuel quality, and performance mods that increase engine efficiency.
