Have you checked for codes? It could be something simple like the MAP sensor unplugged at the back of the intake manifold.

With cam and LT headers I get around 30 MPG highway. I think something is definately wrong. Are you getting the 21 on the average MPG or the instant??

with a double overdrive 6spd vettes tend to get very good mileage sometimes 30 mpg. but i would say anything in the 20s is fantastic. if you gained 47 horses your gonna prolly lose a few mpg. chances are your also putting your foot in it more. thats a pretty sizeable increase. now why in the world are you worried about gas mileage in a vette? drive it like ya stole it.

I thank you for your comments, when I think about it 21-23 is not bad for a vette. I did'nt buy the car to perform like a hybrid.
