    Dont know what it means gotta ask the guy who posted just what i think he meant, a few years ago they couldve been cheaper then they are now NEW or he saw them USED for cheap. Either way i dont think when they came out a few years ago they were that cheap.

    just tuned a 02 TA with LTs, ORY and now gets 22mpg city driving. it had bad 02s and piss poor tune before and was only getting 15mpg

    my blazer which is stock minus a 87 octane tune sees 20 mpg average and has seen as high as 23mpg on a long highway trip.

    and NO PA is not flat
    man you aint kindin' PA has some of the most hilly roads in the US. As well as some of the shittiest pothole covered streets too. Well next to OH. LOL

I'm not up to speed on ported LS6 heads vs ported LS1 heads. Or the LS6 cam vs other cams with respect to power and gas mileage. Given about $3000 (not firm) what would be the recommended setup? I want to retain low rpm torque and a relatively quiet car.

    Thanks,

    Sounds to me you are wantin' near stock condition. I'd just go with a good tune. Leave everything else as is. You already got a quick car, would'nt take much to ice the cake. But that's just my oppy. I think if you aint tracking it go close to stock. I'm not up on mpg's since I dont think mpg's when I mod. But hey that's just me. Just a suggestion. Good luck

    the intake that is a Ram jet for the trucks? that intake will work well for boost and good for the trucks that need downlow. its not a car intake. Long runners are for torque

    your not serious right? long runners torque, short runners more HP. high rpms you want air in and out as fast as possible. to build lowend you want to maximize the air as much as possible to build lowend.
