I am not sure. I added mods and lost weight. Who knows? I am gunning for 10.7s on pump gas and stock wheels with Z28. Plus doing MR2,C4 and Mustang. I should be into crack..would be cheaper and easier

That tall *** 6th gear would be fine cruising at 80-90 with 5.13s.

My buddy phill had 4.56s in his ta. Highway cruising was a nonissue

I just averaged 27.3 mpg on my 900 mile relocation drive from Illinois to NC. 6th gear is still useless for anything other than gas mileage even with 3.90s. haha

How's your spine after that trip. ****! Lol. But that's actually pretty damn good. Given my Genesis best was like 30.6 with a 8 speed and 3.90s

Are you sure rpms aren't closer to 1900-2000 at 70mph? 2500-2600rpm seems awfully high for 26" tire and 4.11s. Because 3.90 gear with 26" tire and T56 is right about 1800rpm in a good friend's Z28.

My best mpg has been 29.1 but that was with 4.11s. As S8 said 27's or better are pretty normal on the highway. Not uncommon for them to get 30 mpg on a good run .

Hell they could be. I haven't driven the car in a few months. I will get it out soon and check.

Between my LS and my LT 4th gens I've logged over 300K.. spine is great. 😃 seriously though my car rides surprisingly well considering I have 1LE springs and no other suspension mods.

Maybe it's just because my suspension is so stiff. Guy before me has it lowered and has it setup for autocross. It's nice and tight, but sucks on the slightest bump. But on smooth roads it's a dream

Adjustable coilovers on the front, and 1.5in drops springs and stock shocks on the rear

Yeah that could be...I run stock shocks and 1LE springs (cut) so it sits 2 inches lower. It's not a great setup by any means but it's not still / back breaking at all.
