Re: Street Unit Exclusive! Pre-Production CPE MS3 Intakes installed! pics not 56K

Please post back when you are sure of the fuel consumption+/- because that is my main interest in the product. The last thing I need is more hp but if it means better mileage in 65/75mph hwy driving, I'm all for it.

Yes, resetting the ECU is needed. As for bad mileage, I am getting 20 right now, and I used to get 24. I am thinking it might be by me loving the sound of it spooling up.

Silly question, but I guess someone has to be the noob who asks it...how did you reset the ecu?

I am happy to email more pics, or check the streetunitforum.com for the thread in the MS3 section.

[email protected]

I can send 2MB vid clips too if interested. They suck, but I can send em.

a bit lower than I assumed, but still not a problem, if you dont mind getting a confirmation on the location that would kick big ass, thanks.
