That's amazing mpg's. You're pulling 23.5mpg's on the highway with a supercharger and 4.10s....and yet I've got to have my 3.5L Duratec Edge in cruise at 60mph to get that....sounds like I need to upgrade the kid hauler!

Admittedly, conditions were near perfect. Very little wind, and a flat road. However, twenty miles of the tank were on dirt roads, I ran it up over eighty a few times, and I had my cruise control set on seventy two.

Heck, if you were on a state highway doing 55-65, you'd probably pull closer to 27-28mpgs

WOW! Those are amazing mpg numbers!

An SC is definitely on my mod list within the next 6-8 months.
What are the boost numbers? 6-7psi?

I think the boost is around 8 psi. But I'm really happy so far.

Nice write-up Chris.

Looks good under there and I'm glad you got the kinks worked out and are enjoying the car now.

Now for a real video...?
