    nope. A stock or barely modified car wont get that mileage, or at least it is rare. Just those gears alone will probably take you down to barely 20+mpg. And once you put in a cam, ouch.

    Well, you can get over 300rwhp with just bolt ons, and with the heads, maybe 320 or so rwhp.

    then leave the car alone and go trade it in on an Altima SE 3.5...270HP and still get 19/27mpg, will be way more reliable and cheaper to operate.

    didn't notice he excluded either, wise ass. the suggestion was intentionally & partially anti-performance - in direct response to the idea of adding performance heads on an LT1 while retaining the stock cam for gas mileage purposes.
