Well i only have LTs tons of suspension stuff and stock 3.31 gears(other than the whipple at 8lbs). My rpm is only at about 2000-2200 at 80mph . Thats the only think stopping me from getting 3.73s.

Apparently, I get the same as other Whipple owners: 16 mpg on average and up to 23mpg on the highway.

I can get in the mid 20s when driving "normal"... but that rarely happens as this is not my DD and I try to fun every time I take her out. So in reality, I am averaging in the mid teens:-)

My current set-up has the base E-force kit (5psi), stock pump (for now) and stock exhaust.
