What chev truck engines have the best mileage?

Looking to buy a (fairly new) used regular cab 4×4 1/2 ton (or maybe 3/4 ton) – I would prefer something with fuel efficiency but decent power also. It would be used for medium duty hualing occasionally. Any suggestions?

AEM – A Leader In Engine Management Systems

Tags: , , , ,

imageIn today’s modern high performance vehicles the electronic components in the vehicle are as important as the mechanical components. The electronic components tell the vehicle how to perform in any given situation. It is not uncommon to see a laptop computer duct taped to a roll bar to provide the data history of the performance of the electronics. If you are truly savvy you won’t need that laptop. What you will have is an AEM programmable Engine Management System.

Programmable engine management systems allow the car’s performance to be monitored and changed with the click of a mouse. AEM brings a truly plug and play system to the performance world. The factory ECU plugs straight into the AEM ems using the standard vehicle wiring harness. No special wiring is needed. The AEM system controls the fuel injection tuning of the engine. The operating system is Microsoft Windows based using Windows 95 through ME platforms.

The AEM EMS not only provides data storage but also is a truly versatile tool for engine systems control. Multiple fuel injection drivers combined with 16 general purpose outputs and 7 definable switch inputs allow almost any component in the system to be controlled. The GPO’s are available as both high side (switched +12VDC) and low side (switched -12VDC). In addition any dedicated GPO that is not used in the system can be defined for another purpose. There are potentially over 40 GPO’s that are available in the standard system. Outputs are one thing, but inputs are another. AEM provides you with 7 switch inputs. That versatility provides even the most finicky tuner more than enough systems to work with in defining the engine management that they choose to set up.

If you have a boost controller piggybacked to your system you can pull it off and throw it away. The AEM ems includes one in the basic package. What kind of rev limiter do you want to use? This engine management system provides 5 specific definable limiters for you to pick and choose from. AEM provides a 2-step launch control that allows you a simple easy to use tool, which give you the ability to adjust to track conditions as they change during a series of races. Got gas? Nitrous that is, this ems can control wet or dry systems. One of the tools in tuning is the EGT. This engine management system allows you to utilize 4 RTD EGT sensors to be inputs. You will never have to guess again.

The electronics that control the fuel are only part of the equation to better performance. The fuel needs air to burn and there is no better way to provide a air to the engine than through an AEM cold air induction system. The AEM cold air intake and short ram air induction systems were originally provided for sport compact cars. AEM through their engineering processes knew that cold air provided better combustion than hot air does. AEM engineers placed the air filter outside the engine compartment to provide the intake with cooler air. Each air intake system is designed for a particular vehicle. There is no “one size fits all”.

When a stereo gets cranked up, you can feel the air move from the big bass speakers. AEM engineers recognize this and created the V2 Cold Air Intake. This air intake utilizes two chambers. Each of these chambers has a different length and diameter to create sound waves in different frequencies. These sound waves move the air through a corkscrew pattern in the induction system and provide a better airflow across the board no matter what the engine speed.

The AEM intake systems provided such a performance boost for sport compacts that owners of larger vehicles like SUVs and trucks demanded one. In response to these owners, AEM created the Brute Force intake. These intakes are created for each vehicle and are guaranteed for the life of the vehicle. The Brute Force induction systems are pending CARB exemption in all 50 states.

AEM provides plug and play EMS for the tuner and cold air induction systems to allow that tuner to know that the fuel provided will be burned by air supplied in the most effective manner. An easy to use engine management system tat is versatile and flexible allows setup changes for almost any environment or racing condition. AEM is the leader in EMS.

This video is for Scott, my GOOD MATE down under. I explain further my take on reed valve operations and why they are so important for high performance DIO or JOG engines.

Normal Mitsubishi Dealer Says Asx Will Fit Great In Mitsubishi's Lineup

Tags: ,

imageIt’s great to see automakers getting in on the crossover trend. To be honest, I was getting a little sick of having to compete for lane space with enormous SUVs, and it was about time manufacturers started phasing them out. You know the kind I’m talking about; you’re driving down a narrow four-lane highway, and suddenly you’re trying to get around a huge truck. The truck’s side rail is just hanging over the dashed white line, giving you just enough space to eke through without clipping the guard rail. It’s not the truck’s fault inherently, but there are a lot of drivers out there that just can’t handle the size and power of an SUV.
Your Normal Mitsubishi dealer is gearing up to release a nice little crossover that will help the consumer public’s easy transition to bigger cars on sedan platforms. This March, Mitsubishi plans to unveil the brand new ASX crossover at the Geneva Motor Show, a European version of the Japanese market RVR. As a compact crossover, the ASX is a five-seater that measures about 4.3 meters in length, coming in just below the Outlander in the Mitsubishi lineup of high-performing, dependable vehicles. Bloomington IL car dealers are revving their engines in anticipation of the vehicle launch.
While we don’t know much yet about the new ASX, we do know that the car will ride on a 1.8-liter turbocharged direct-injection petrol/gasoline engine, complemented nicely by a six-speed manual transmission. The ASX is based on the Concept-cX, which featured a diesel engine, but thus far there has been no talk from Mitsubishi regarding the possibility of putting the engine in the ASX. Staffers at your Normal car dealer are excited to check out preview photos of the ASX from the Geneva Car Show. They are also excited to find out if the ASX will offer an available all-wheel drive option.
The ASX will roll out in European markets in the near future (in the spring, to be specific), so we will have to see the car fares over there before we get any more details about the U.S. launch. Still, your Normal Mitsubishi dealer is excited to get those details. The RVR will hit the market in Japan this month, which should also help Mitsubishi collect some data on how to market the vehicle in the states. Until then, Bloomington IL car dealers will just have to be patient and await the coming launch of the crossover.
While your Normal car dealer is gearing up for the launch of the ASX, you can still take a look at some of the awesome crossovers flooding the market. Over the past couple of years, the industry has made a conscious shift towards smaller, more fuel efficient cars, and crossovers have made a great platform for bigger families and drivers in need of cargo room to make the switchover. As the industry continues to shift, look to automotive leaders like Mitsubishi to lead the charge into the 21st century and beyond.

Are the old style hemi engines worth anything?

TAGS: None

I,ve found a lot of 50,s and early 60,s mopars…They belong to a little old lady that wants to get rid of them…He husband died and never did anything with the cars…She,s got probably 10 cars that have been sitting in the field for years….Some have the old hemi engines in them…Are they worth anything?
