Well with the trex cam and 5k stall/3spd you really have no hope of getting better than maybe 12mpg in that car. If you were serious about getting better mileage out of that car you would at least go with a 4l80 trans with a lockup converter. That could get you back in the 20+mpg range since your car is mainly a nitrous car when the nitrous is off it should still get reasonable mileage.

I originally defended you thinking that you were actually serious about trying to improve your car's mileage. I used to hang around on ls1tech but gave it up when I realized there was a huge amount of idiot kids on that site that think they have the ultimate car and everyone should worship them for dumping massive amounts of money in a small block v8 to make it fast. If you can't handle people picking on you on a message board about mileage when you don't act like you seriously care about your car's mileage then you might need to grow up a bit more and come back here when you are more mature and ready to take it all in stride and use the knowledge you gain to actually improve your car. Once people see you are serious about getting better mileage they will actually help you as much as they can.

If you only care about fast cars then all I have to say is my kit car will always be faster than your Camaro no matter what you do to it

You make a lot of assumptions about the people of this board, I personally tried to ensure your fair treatment. Your responses/post are proving you to be immature and mouthy. Your pointless banter is getting old. Grow up and go back to your economically insupportable world of fast cars.

And as a matter of fact I thoroughly enjoy croquet.

Yeah, you definitely love the cock.

Seeing as how this is a site based on getting the best mileage out of a car possible, who cares what the performance specs are on my kit car, I will update it's mileage information once it gets back on the road this summer though. I don't really discuss it or my Camaro or any of my other cars here since they normally are not used for getting good mileage. My Metro XFi is basically the only car I discuss here and it's specs are pretty impressive I think.

If you were serious about being a useful participant of this site you would have at least commented on the possibility of swapping in a 4l80 transmission to replace the th400 you are currently running. Like you said the car is down for a few months so swapping to a new trans would be a simple job while it is out of the car already. Also since the car is down for a few months you could tell us what car you are currently driving, length of your commute to work, %city/highway, and other information to help us guide you to get better mileage.

If anything ill be swapping to a glide, or a 2.10 first geared th400. Im pretty sure ive seen the extent of the *******s on this site, i dont feel much like getting information from them anymore.
