Default Best Mods

I am new to ls1 mods and I was wondering what are the best bolt-on mods without destroying the mpg?

For me it was new gears. On my A4 car, I went from 2.73 to 3.42 and gained MPG. Car ran much better also...

Lid and some free mods work the best.

Best without hurting your mpg? Full exhaust. It will only slightly help or not really affect your mpg and you'll see some big power improvements.
