    LT headers will cause the car to run rich. You should get it tuned and you will see better gas mileage. Contact Frost in the Computer & Tuning section of this forum, You should be able to get away with a mail order tune with your Mods.

    You will run a bit rich befor a tune, but on the same token you shouldnt be using "alot" of fuel. I ran mine without a tune for about 2 years with no issues and didnt really noticed more fuel consumption, i did notice my foot go heavier because i loved the sound.
    How much gas are we talking? Did you check the codes your throwing to ensure everything is peachy? Front 02 working properly?

    Anamech, The most common cause for bad fuel mileage is old front O2 sensors. They control most of the car's fueling and they drift off from accurate long before they set any codes.

    With that said, you could still certainly use some basic tuning. I offer international service and shipping through my website and the price has been lowered again to only $125 + S/H for F-body PCM work: http://www.lsxtune.com/shop/product_...roducts_id/631
