EUDM P10 SR20DE+T 280 hp T28, S4 cammed 50k kilometers 24 mpg city/ 32 mpg highway. The problem is my driving style is a bit sporty. Economy could be greater if driven like normal. Nistune tuned for 15.8-16.2 urban, 15.5-8 highway cruise

Was: U13 DET, 2860rs, JWT S3 cams, 550cc injectors, P11 5speed, AEM - 28mpg highway

Setup is now: same except 80lb injectors and coilpacks - not calculated MPG yet

Coming soon will be 6speed - expected MPG 37+ highway

I used to daily my turbo NX. Pretty much same setup as you listed but with stock cams and a GT2871R. I used to beat the shit out of it everyday. Gas mileage was great, would easily get over 30mpg on the highway and I only had a base map. The only issue I ever had with the car besides destroying the P11 trans is that my ECU ground came loose and the car used to shut off randomly. Honestly it should be a reliable car as long as you know how to work on a turbo car. And as long as you stay out of boost you should be getting real good gas mileage.

Not sure anything you do on the EMS is going to pick that up for you. I am able to tweak things easier in the EMS with MAP than a nistune with maf I think. I wouldn't know where to start on a realtime or JK Tuning ecu.


Realtime and JK is pretty much the same as Nistune with MAF. Soon enough the Nemu will have MAP support so it will same as an EMS.

Definitely keep us posted, I want to do a 6speed swap just for that. No stock LSD does blow though.

I'm getting some S4's just to try them out. I doubt I'll keep them because I prefer making more power via more boost on the DET. But am curious on what the S4 buzz is all about.

S4's FTW! Best all around cam I think for our motors.

What cruising AFR's do you generally stick to? Right now I turned it down to 14.3-15.3 from 16's and doesn't seem like I lost/gained any gas mileage. Would love to break away from 20's city.

So should I drive my b14 to Kentucky or Virginia for some help on my ems tuning?
