Put that engine in the back (where it should be) of a sleek tube frame with appropriate fairing and OD (T56 with the .5:1 6th) gearing. ~700rwhp in a ~1400lb chassis will put you at an ~even power to weigh ratio.

What's up with all of these people with gas-hogs coming on in search of better mileage? First the Scummer H2, and now this? I blame MSN.

If anyone wants to get better FE, we should be here to help them. Being rude is not going to plant the seed of change, it'll just make enemies.

I got my camaro with a 3000 stall back up to 24mpg. It was running around 9mpg before I started paying attention to it.

A complete list of mods might help us to get you in the right direction.

http://www.gassavers.org/showthread.php?t=2505 is the thread where I talked about it.

I think ~40mpg@55mph cruise would be near optimum, but the engine would be at near idle, and oil pressure may be a problem.

I understand, but at the same time, we're talking about people who do things that are directly destroying their FE, then come on in search of better mileage and better emissions. It just seems to me alot like feel-good concern rather than actual concern.

I also happen to be involved in Earth First! though, so I do tend to be a bit more radical regarding such issues.

A drag car like that should only be used for racing/ occasional use. For the everyday driving I reccomenend a civic/metro/protege/sentra/escort zx2/Saturn sl1.
