What differential and gear are you running Tim? Do you have aftermarket axles and stubs?

It was the mileage that ultimately led me to try retuning. I kept reading about guys getting great mileage with much larger cams. I was lucky to see 10mpg around town, 15mpg highway. Finally, I reached out to Don at slowhawk and he got me squared away. I'm so glad I did, I love my car again
Love mileage. I approach 30 mpg on the highway if I go easy. If I step on it, sub 10mpg is very easy.

It's averaging 27+ on the highway now.

Thanks! I still think I can get it down a bit more, but only time will tell.

I might start doing stupid things though, I'm started to become addicted to pulling weight out of the car. Ran out of easy "unnecessary" stuff though. Race weight w/ 1/4 tank is 3630 give or take a few lbs..

A/C(Started blowing warm air and rarely used), Fixed back seats, Battery relocation and possibly removing the stereo in favor of an In-Dash Tablet with a bluetooth speaker might happen before the next track visit.
