OK Ben: since you can't wait to find out (neither could I)

For an average FE improvement of 8.8%

Feeeeee!

RPM difference!?!?

Anyway, what's the lowest speed you can go in 5th with the new transmission?

So when are you going to attempt a 110 mpg segment?

No pressure, eh?

I don't think the new legs are going to make much of a difference in city/suburban driving, where I did the 101 mpg loop.

I may try again sometime though.

Now that this is done, I'd like to have a second look at the belly pan. But not likely soon. I want to get back to Project ForkenSwift.

No, no pressure

The lower rpm acceleration should help a little. Too hard to say how much. Can you still shift at 15, 30, 40, 50 or do you have to stretch it out a little more?

But with taller gearing and aero mods going 50 will be like going 40, and then you can speed your way to victree.

Yeah, theoretically, the lower RPM should help with the moderate load/low RPM accel technique. (But it's not proven one way or the other yet)

So cruising in 5th will definitely see the major benefit since your shift revs are probably similar to the old transmission.

I just realized - you've got a practically new 1.0L transmission lying around now...
