Glad you did it and had fun! The numbers seem a tad on the low side, but given that elevation and your auto (autos arent as power-robbing as they use to be, but still....) it makes a little more sense.

What plans do you have for the vert?

Nothing much. I have done only slight cosmetic things so far. Matt black stripes, side scoops, and driving lights. Maybe a CAI in the furure without a tune (I like my warrenty and milage). My wife would like to have it make more noise (she liked the sound of our white 97 GT convertable). It even got so far as we test drove a California Special. The $200/month increase in payments made us shy away from that. I am a little gun shy on what axel back exhaust to get as I don't want it to drone or sound like a ricer.

I would suggest the Flowmaster Force II's. They are about the least aggressive a/b out there, and doesn't rice things up too bad at all. I was gonna do a custom exhaust setup using Pypes M80 mid-mount mufflers. But the o/r xpipe was a lot cheaper, gave more power, and doesn't sound too horrible, imo of course.

I understand the warranty thing, but why do you think the tune would effect your mileage? If you keep your foot under control, tune/cai adds 1-2mpg.

So what is the norm as far as stock, and lightly modded 3.7's in the 1/4??

Do they respond well to common mods, like CAI/tune??
