Default COBB Economy Tune w/ Bolt Ons?

I'm running TP Stage 2 right now
Intake
Catless Downpipe
CBE

I'm headed to CA for a week to visit and it's a 7 hour drive, I usually make the trip with my economy tune for that 2-3 extra MPG, can I run that tune with those parts on or is that dangerous?

Plus it keeps me from getting on it which I have a bad habit of doing when I'm bored, or in the middle of the desert.

I wouldn't recommend using that economy tune from Cobb with those Mods. Others have downloaded COBB Race tune and adjusted fuel trim at cruising speeds and part throttle. There is a thread about it that isn't that old. Look through this section a bit, I will try and find it myself.

What vehicle is this? The main issue would be what intake you are running and whether that is compatible with the fuel economy maps available for your vehicle.

I would not run any map that is not compatible with the intake in question or at least can be verified (with a wideband o2 sensor) to work properly with the map. I would stick with a compatible performance map and simply try to stay out of boost as much as possible (which is where the majority of the gains in economy will be seen).

Then you'll be fine if you stick with your tuned maps, but our OTS maps are not calibrated for that intake. You might want to see if your tuner can make you an economy map that would be compatible with your intake.
