Do you know what kind of a % gain you get from LRR tires?

nevermind i just looked it up. 1%-2% gain.

2008 EPA adjusted:

Distance traveled by bicycle in 2007= 1,830ish miles
Average commute speed=25mph (yes, that's in a car)

I'd try junkyards for the EGR stuff. You'll have to call dozens of places before you find it, and it's probably not going to be cheap, but maybe they'll have the O2 sensor too. They're normally insanely expensive.

If you're getting 50mpg in open-loop, you'll be gunning for #1 once you get it fixed.

Not going for #1 Haha, would be nice though. Not for my ego but for my pockets.
50 average is with lots of Engine on coasting, down hills and what not. The front block off seems to have made a huge difference in coasting. I want to work on Engine off, but my transmission has about had it. So im hesitant about the rolling starts. Seems to jerk pretty hard regardless of the gear im in or how slow i let out.

I would love to get a Supermid, found Svoboys write up on the install.
Will work on that when i get time/money to do so.
What does the wayfinder do?

A friend of mine has an Egr solenoid and possibly a VX harness that im hopeing to get later this week. So we will see how that goes. Will let u know.
Order some golf shoes, otherwise we might never make it out of this place alive.

The Wayfinder is a compass with an inside/outside temp display and an altimiter that measures in 5ft increments. It is good for experimentation when you want to record temps and elevations. The air speed indicator tells me if I have a headwind or tailwind based on the delta from the speedometer. It also tells me when I am close enough to another vehicle to benefit from drafting.
