    ok i was just wondering thanks alot i would still love others opinion on this but it i can ill just get a stroker kit from lunati and make a 383..so that would mean making the step from the 215cc TFH i should go with the 225?? i dunno that seems to be logical lol

    I'd honestly just keep the stock cubes and do some type of forced induction if you want to keep your MPG up. I know a couple people putting over 500 rwhp and getting 24+ MPG on a LS1 block.

    I got 18 -21 mpg with my 408. It sure hated those light to light races. I could watch the gauge drop. But it was worth it, lol.

    ok so i could possible get good mpg (resonable) if i stroked it to a 383..
    now i figure that if you tune it to the max potenial that affects MPG now if you dont then you could see more mpg right in theory??

    as for the why dont i boost it? im sick of boostin.. ive done the JDM scene till death do us part and to this day i mt record is a rb20, pushing 589rwhp and 450rwtq so im sick of the noise and the time it takes to do it right...pluz for like 10k i can have a all motor monster and i hurd the the sound of a V-8 gets pantys wet... i dunno
