Don't all forget that you're discussing peak HP figures. You need to look at the hp and torque curves and look at the difference in the area under the curve. You're only at peak HP twice before you...

That is amazing. All other factors being equal I would expect continued improvement in your results as the engine breaks-in. 0ne or two mpg improvement under ideal conditions wouldn't surprise me.

Just a slight tilt of your head to either side will brighten the HUD momentarily. Its not like one needs to stare at it constantly.
