Just bought a 2004 Blue AWD Escalade (6.0) and was wondering what performance modifications have netted the best seat of the pants increase in power. Also have you noticed increased fuel economy. I am well aware that they aren't meant to be a 45 mph Toyota Prius but currently I am getting about 12.9 mpg and am looking to try to get closer to 15 if possible. Mine has 55, 000 miles and I am unaware of how it was mantained by the previous owner. It runs well and smooth. I am planning on doing a tune up and cold air intake and see were that gets me.

Exhaust, air intake and computer programming with something like the Preditor you help with performance, you may see a slight mpg increase too. :) My 03' got about 12.6 in the city and 17-19 on the highway (17 in the summer and close to 19 in the winter)
