    29 m.p.g!!

    I have just installed a torqer v2 cam and ported and polished my stock heads with a valve grind and got 29 m.p.g. on a road trip. I was not expecting this good of fuel economy.


    My mods are lid, s.t. headers, factory upgrade slp exhaust, s.s.r.a, k & n, t.c. bypass ls6 intake and a tune with efilive tunes. (also the cam and heads as mention above)

    has anyone else got this kind of economy with a camed car??

    thats pretty damn good for a cammed car, my SS bone stock with the SLP cold air kit got 31mpg on a long trip but i was trying for good mileage and hardly ever touched over 60mph

    You guys ever think that maybe you are running too lean???
    Those numbers sound like stock type mileage numbers.

    Gotta remember though. When the cars just cruising at a steady speed there's not really any need for it to run rich. Around 14.7 is fine in most cases.

    My old car cruised right around there till I stepped on it and it dropped to the 11's IIRC

    Yeah but it was always nice when people said it was a gas hog to be able to turn around and tell them it got just as good if not better mileage than their 4/6 cylinders.

    With 2 to 3 times the power, and 10 times the looks.
