Nice work!

Congrates on the improvement the gaslog is trending the right way. We used to have this van before we sold it for the new car. Without the AC(it's really a killer in this thing about 4-5 MPG) you'll get about 24 MPG city with out much effort and 29 highway(60 MPH). My wife mainly drove this car but when I did drive it I noticed a couple of observation you could try to help the FE. I was suprised at how well it will coast(even without it being in N) and it seems that it prefered an extremely light foot for the best FE even accererating after a stop. Once the TCU adjust you can get it to shift gears around 2k or under with light pressure on the throttle and then it does not take much to keep it going.

On your mods what does I/H/E stand for?

One of the most common mods to improve performance is to replace the Intake, exhaust Header, and Exhaust system for more horsepower (I/H/E). Back in my go-gast days, that was generally step 1.
